CONVICTION AFTER COVID

From fear to hope
From emergency to emergence
From disfiguration to transfiguration
From exploitation to shared planetary wealth 
From random selfishness to new responsibilities
Movement towards the Common Good is growing.

With courage and fortitude 
With determination and an open mind
With pursuing every palliative in our range
With collaborative design of a curative system
With harmonising creative tension of opposites
That movement will generate new structures of inclusive justice

In this unprecedented opportunity
In rethinking fundamental beliefs and values
In institutions losing their rigidity in openness to new needs
In sharing of the common wealth gifted by planet earth
In just use of Iand, air and water as basic to livelihood
The movement’s new ecologically resilient system 
Will work for everyone and protect the earth.
