I found a place

I found a place mother,
A place where all is peaceful and all is quiet,
A place where the worlds troubles are no more a bother,
A place where the rich the poor the large the small are all one,
And strife and struggles are all done
Grief and pain are all but a rumor,
I found a place mother.

I found a place mother,
A place where credit is immaterial because none exists,
A place where sorrow and joy are all just memories,
A place with no gnashing of teeth and clenching of fists,
Where the meadows are green and fears are mere stories,
And the lion and the lamb sit next to the panther,
I found a place mother.

I found a place mother,
A place where beauty exists in fear of the same,
A place where all are beautiful and none is below par,
A place mistakes don’t happen and no one points blame,
A place where strength is immaterial and no one is a star,
And no one has to hide exactly who they are,
I found a place mother.

I found a place mother,
A place where cruelty is unheard of and kindness rules it all,
A place where the chivalrous win the day and the greedy are trod upon,
A place where pride actually comes before destruction a haughty spirit brings a fall,
Where friends are friends forever and all rifts between people are torn,
And the children there all have a father,
I found a place mother

Come with me mother,
To this land of riches untold,
They say it flows with milk I hope there’s honey too,
And we need no money because the streets are paved with gold,
All we will do is sit with the sages of old,
We can all go tell sister uncle and brother,
Come and see the place I found mother.
