Here to eternity pilgrims meander.
Purposeless? Wondering? Listless, yet loved.
Eyes on the distance, we measure reality,
gently held, graciously, like a hand gloved.
Led by a passion, move onwards and upwards,
follow our destiny, seek after grace;
reach beyond limits society renders,
focussing freedom in this time and space.
Lives are not bounded by creed or religion,
life not constrained by tradition or fate;
grasp opportunity, balancing blessing,
rise above hatred before it’s too late.
