On this Thanksgiving
We give thanks

We give thanks
That among us
There are those
Who still care
About the truth

We give thanks
That among us
There are those
Who still speak
The truth

We give thanks
That among us
There are those
Who will still make
Sacrifices
For the truth

We give thanks
That
In the end
Truth
Wills out

We give thanks
That among us
There are those
Whose compassion...

Knows no borders
Knows no boundaries
Knows no limits
Knows no restrictions
Knows no excuses
Knows no exceptions
Knows no fatigue
Knows no hopelessness
And
Knows no argument
Against it

We give thanks...

That despite
The horrors
And tragedies
Of the world
We live in...

We still have
The room
To make it
A better place
To be

And

We still have
The space
To wake up
To the peace
That eternally rests
At the heart
Of who we really are

May we all
Find the compassion
Within ourselves
That...

Knows no borders
Knows no boundaries
Knows no limits
Knows no restrictions
Knows no excuses
Knows no exceptions
Knows no fatigue
Knows no hopelessness
And
Knows no argument
Against it

May we all
Find the courage
To speak out
And fight
For the truth

And
