If not now, then when?

If not now, then when?
Doesn't matter if you can—
All that does is if you do.
Purple, lavender, or blue—
We all share a single earth.
Towns and cities are our hearth.
There, we sing & dance & dine—
Trading trinkets; drinking wine.
When we share, we're at our best—
Can't forget about the rest.
To improve, we must invest—
Only then, we'll pass the test.

Start 2017 by doing something great—it takes approximately 12 seconds and half an ounce of effort—and help us spread the word about our MLK Weekend of Service. We hope you'll join us for one of our incredible events, but even if you can't, following this link will bring us one step closer to repairing the world!

The Hero We Deserve

He's the hero we deserve,
But, not the one we need right now.
We all know who we'd prefer,
But, instead we picked a lazy cow.
He knows he should be with her,
But, instead he'll get a big, white house.
We're all being immature,
In this wild game of cat & mouse.

The Volume of Action

The volume of action—
It far exceeds words.
Some like to chirp—
I'll leave that to the birds.
Everyone's human—
We all get perturbed.
Humanity's lost when we're labeled disturbed.

A mile wide, and an inch deep

Why does the mountain look so steep?
A mile wide, and an inch deep.
No way to say when we'll reach the peak.
We're just sitting here waiting, so to speak.
I've crossed the prairie—
I've swam the creek.
I've hopped a fence—
Been chased by sheep.
I lay at night, but never sleep.
I keep making promises I can't keep.

Waiting for the World to End

Now, part of me simply wants to drive on,
When no one knows what lies around the bend.
Won't hit the brakes until the road is gone—
Now, we're just waiting for the world to end.

Today, we have our maps and GPS—
Want to relay a message? Just press send.
If we know all the answers, why'd we guess?
Now, we're just waiting for the world to end.

To listen is to ask—you know what's best.
You're way above the fashion—all those trends.
You've made it here—it's time to take the test.
Still, we're just waiting for the world to end.

I want to know the answer, don't hold back.
We've got to get this country back on track.
