All Beings Matter

ALL BEINGS MATTER (2010)
by Renata-Laura Vegalante

Some passions or compassion cease to exist without me

I crave peace to ease the suffering that will exist with or without me

Carry onto sleep in dreams with selfish imagination, it continues indefinitely

Letting go would remove all prayer and all that is divine, for mere finery

When you cannot express compassion it resolves like memory

Blasted as a shooting star into the galaxy so dark, a bleeding heart in a body unharmed

And still all Beings matter.


Blasted as a shooting star into the galaxy so dark, a bleeding heart in a body unharmed

And still all Beings matter.

Some Beings on earth are only babies without the safety and love

When all are born they are part of the world that I wish to make my own

What more can I do do to protect you, I can't take comfort in plain knowledge

That all Beings matter, and in all you have known

You might never see A Heaven and nurture is shortlived

Compassion for even the smallest is worth it,

There are many hands that exist on land, there are not enough ways of expressing

A break in the distress to the rest of natural kind

As time evolves more minds will open outside of flaunting shoes or flimsy vice

All dogs go to Heaven, barn animals to Candy Mountain to rot like decay


What can I do, there is only one of me and two of you, you wait til it's all over

When we pass there are other Beings repeating a pattern of forever

I wish for an ethereal humanity on earth where All Beings Matter.
