There Go I

Across the sea of knowledge,
into the vast deep unknown,
I search for answers ancient,
I search for my very own.

Wherever there is trouble,
wherever there is strife.
I'm off to find the answers,
and dedicate my life.

To go where there is danger,
to go where there is pain.
To go where there is healing,
to go where there is gain.

For there is no place for ignorance,
when knowledge is all around.
Ignorance only holds us back,
when new insight has been found.

There is only going forward,
there is no going back.
Evolution is a powerful force,
giving strength to what we lack.

The challenges are mounting,
and the unfolding of a new age,
will test our determination,
and our willingness to change.

We will solve our many problems,
and save the Earth once more.
For we have no other choice,
we're the only ones keeping score.

There are no extraterrestrials,
or gods that came before.
We only have our resolve,
and knowledge to bring to fore.

And when we have fully understood,
just what we are here for.
We can move out into space.
There go I... before.
