One Voice Heard in the Wilderness

What may one voice in the wilderness accomplish?
What may one voice in the wilderness accomplish?
Clouds of worry
Clouds of worry
A time for change
A time for change
In our unison, are days of brightness, for our futures.
In our unison, are days of brightness, for our futures.
We shall escape the darkness..to leave it behind.
We shall escape the darkness..to leave it behind.
One voice in the wilderness brings all hope.
One voice in the wilderness brings all hope.
The voice rings from one to another...
The voice rings from one to another...

The Magnitude of One Voice



The wilderness of this modern world, an empty vastness in its reality,

All seems focused upon selfish claims, as exclusive, its impunity.

May one small voice be shared, is time for change, removing all shame,

Could these timely words be heard, as a new start, without any blame?


Should not we all stand together, as David against a Goliath of hate,

Must we be doomed to a life of servitude, our times, as chance, or fate?

Will the history of humanity to record, in future times, our losing stance,

As each participant reels and rolls about in their on incessant dance?


How many with the talents of a Michelangelo or a Leonardo, to be born,

Will a comparable Beethoven or Tchaikovsky, their loss, ours to mourn?

A new Galileo or Columbus, so brave and innovators, of a world of hope,

If these are lost, then who will serve to save us from this tragedy, its scope?


One voice of a lone and stirring orator, as in Churchill or Roosevelt 's refrain,

History's champions, gave their all in times of need, in sunshine, or in rain.

A strength in uniting, and our all standing up to tyranny's dreadful demands,

As a song of bravery and of compassion, to be spread throughout the lands.


A single sound, a lone domino to stir the rest, carried afar, a message, the best,

Be strong to insure the future's blessed, through thoughtful means, its manifest.

Our hands hold this worlds new joyous fate, we must all decide, the time is late,

A new tomorrow will be brighter on this date, giving us a just cause to celebrate!

A lone domino to stir the rest. Yes, indeed. It begins with one. I pray for the domino affect of those who want to make a positive change in today's world.

I stand behind this group. I am ready. Thank you whonunuwho for an inspiring poem, maybe we should start with poets and writers who understand the urgent need of change in our world to start working together to support publication and filtration into the masses. Bill has taken a great first step. Jamie

A few can handle it better sometimes, when they have a proper directive, usually in their hearts. Well said.
