If Ever Could We Stand So Tall

If ever could we stand so tall,
To gaze beyond those towering walls,
And see so clearly distant lands,
How well would then we understand
When looking far beyond the names:
The scenes of Life are everywhere the same.

If ever we could hear so well
The faint resounding of the bells
Whose ringing barely touch our ears
How perfectly we'd know -- so clear --
What music lie beneath refrains:
The sounds of Life are everywhere the same.

If could we e'er unveil our hearts,
And so cause hatred to depart,
End wars and battles -- petty rows,
To give ourselves a chance to grow --
And so allow the world to change:
The love of Life is everywhere the same.
The love of Life is everywhere the same.

Author's Notes:
A collaborative effort between FirestoneFeinberg and Ammar. We hope you enjoy reading it, as much as we enjoyed writing it together.

Inspiring and powerful. Both should be proud, now if only the world knew the wisdom of your words ...

Congratulations to both, a wonderful inspirational piece. Yes, indeed, "the sound of life and the love of life are everywhere the same" , beautifully put. --  However,  the chances,  the expectations,  the fairness  and  the hopes , aren't. enjoyed it, ~Dean
