35,000 years ago, the first humans left their mark
painting and scratching the walls of their cave while fires danced on in the dark,
Then we evolved and moved out of our caves, and expanded across every ocean
the loss of connection, the border dissections, set terrible things in motion,
We spent many years just figuring out how many ways to say 'other'
instead of celebrating how far we can go if we work with our sisters and brothers,
Now the call has been made, more a cry of pain, to heal where others left hurt
with misguided ideas that the lives of a people, were theirs to trample like dirt,
Though the tools of our trade, simple brushes and paints, may seem a little low tech
in the right hands, moved by the right hearts, they can have a tremendous effect,
We've arrived at a mission, to help those oppressed, and sew hope in the wake of a blight
so please help how you can, with donations or time, and gifts of compassion and light.
Art is still basically the same as it has been since prehistoric times. It brings together man and the world. It lives through magic. - Keith Haring
