The City

In the City of Anger
I’ll build a City of Love,
I’ll never surrender
And I’ll build my enclave.

Among all that despair,
Among hatred and fear
I’ll do all repairs,
And I’ll plant a new tree.

I’ll nourish respect,
I’ll escape all anxiety
And with my core intact
I’ll build new reality.

I’ll grow people of peace
From the seeds of love,
And I’ll ban all injustice
From this godly ashram.

And that City of Anger
is, of course, being me,
And that City of Love
is the one I want to be.
