Blessed Are Those Who Know Their Way - Poem by Michael Hopkins

Blessed are those who know their way


They are the ones that others will follow

Not following as cattle or sheep

Rather following their instruction and example

Living a life of kindness express outward

Unconcerned about consequences of their actions


Led by Love

Leading through Love

Toward a future yet created

A future of reason

A future that will be built upon the ruins of the few

No longer mislead

No longer confused

No longer afraid

For the ones of darkness

Have been exposed


None will follow their empty path


That Love has returned to the Lands


Comes about a change


A transformation begins


We walk together

To a once promised land

No longer mislead by promises of paradise lost


Understanding that paradise was never lost

Just yet to be created by Man

Eden was not in Mankind's past


In Mankind's future

What a deception of words

Used to distract and mislead


Create a non-place

That never was and never will be


You see the truth


You understand

Paradise was never lost


Yet to be created by Man

It is Man's responsibility to build community

With the tools at hand

The tools given by the Maker


It is time

The blueprints were given to us by all those

Who walked this pathway of life before


Is the time to build a new Eden

A community of love and respect

For all

Even our animal and plant friends


All are a part of the Eden to come


A paradise not to be found


To be created

Inspired by those of inspiration

Those who sacrificed

Those of kindness embodied in man


Is the time of Man

To flourish upon this Land

Called Earth


Is the time

Not yesterday

Not tomorrow
