HOPE-sKIN – SAME IN ANY LANGUAGE!

hope-sKin

h0Pℨ – 弗Ki№ – same in any language!

Nothing is taboo
or beyond the pale
not one thing is out of reach
your future is in your grasp
possess it, claim it
make it your own

That alcoholism?
you can beat it
that depression you can climb out?
take possession
of your circumstances
however bad they are

Never contemplate
your own suicide
think of those it will hurt
seek help and talk about it
to just one someone
it will help you

Talk to God – if he/she is there
that window in the sky
talk to yourself and remember it is ok to cry
we all need to cry
talk to anyone you can find
who
will take the time to listen

If you have done wrong
then please confess it
get down on your knees and pray
face the consequences
of your actions man, woman, child
how much worse can it be?

There is a path you can find
there is somewhere, someone
with an understanding mind
this is not all about you anyway
things you may have done
it is all about the children

It is about the future
your God-given mind
whatever you may think or feel
whatever shit you have done
don’t make it any worse
today your life begun!

You say you’re a leopard
you can’t change your spots
you say you don’t believe in anything
well I say you’re a liar and a snake
who needs to change their skin
and start wearing hope-sKin !

hope is the sun in the sky
that one wet tear in your eye
that mangy bird that just flew by
that old woman on her knees
the one cop who isn’t corrupted
by the system

hope is that child playing
the one in a hospital bed
missing an arm, she still manages to smile
that nurse in Afghanistan
that woman crying
whose bad-son is dead

hope-sKin!
shout about it, talk about it
get your skin out of the air
I’m wearing my new hope-sKin
I’m wearing it on Sunday, this Tuesday
any day – today – hope-sKin!
