Once upon a time ago

An unremarkable remarkable man

Walked upon the earth.


He looked just like an ordinary man

But when he looked and spoke to you

The ground you walked on, shook.


T’was a look from deep within

Carrying you… far away

Into a world that could complete you…


If you knew the way.


Once upon a time ago

He spoke in a mountain high above

Amidst the stones and a gathered few.


He traveled across the continents, speaking

Words inspiring, moving

Thousands to shape new thoughts and actions.


T’was a telling, from heart to heart

A foretelling of how life can go

His words carried far, across and away…


Creating the way.
