Rise Up!
Dedicated to Wangari Maathai, Nobel Peace prize winner 2004, leader of the Green Belt Movement, she organized and led demonstrations to empower women, improve the environment and fight corruption in Africa.

Downtown
the world spins around
everybody running
no one touching the ground
talk on your cell phone
a little faster
keep it up
you’re running toward disaster
what will you become?
who will you be?
if you’re always running
in a hurry-
do you notice you’re son?
he’s almost 16
do you talk to you’re daughters?
coming up beauty queens
come on home?
time to get grounded
and meditate
on you’re obligations… Let us widen our circle of compassion and

rise up rise up rise up rise up now!

How’s it make you feel-
I say life is a blessing
look all around
what we see is suffering:
the people of Rwanda
and Darfur
another holocaust
constant world war
full stop genocide,
the First Americans
now in Tibet
now in the Amazon
how’s it make you feel—
that life expectancy
is only 35
in Sub-Saharan territory.
The new millennium,
the West so complicated,
we take too much,
the 3rd world’s emaciated.
I point a finger,
I point it at myself
all I have is faith,
desire to help all. Let us widen our circle of compassion and

rise up rise up rise up rise up now!

Where is compassion?
come sit with the Dalai Lama
we need a world leaders
spiritualized like Nelson Mandela
empower women—
Wangari Maathai,
The 1st African woman
to win the Nobel Peace Prize
children rise up
you’ve got to take their places
we will work to educate you
that’s our obligation. Let us widen our circle of compassion and

rise up rise up rise up rise up now!

Like a dog in a fire,
on the short leash choking,
asphixiation
that house sure is smoking
that’s how it feels,
do you hear what I say-
when you see a child in trouble
don’t you walk away
don’t you walk
look around
your neighbor
is just like yourself
and if you see a little child is messed up
you can ask, “how can i help?” Let us widen our circle of compassion and

rise up rise up rise up rise up now!

World Peace
by Tashi January 2008

World Peace

People of the World
Are dancing with peace.
Love and Compassion
Are flowing down
Like summer rains
From the Dalai Lama.
Now, children and young people
Have happiness
So they are sleeping with peace
Calm in their homes.

Truthful words
Are spreading like ants
Through the world.
So many people are
Coming together.
They are shaking hands
And smiling.
