Monday Mantra: One Day (A Song)

Posted Mar 14 2011 7:43am
Today's Monday Mantra is a song and is less about just me, and is more about my wish for us all. It is in response to the brutal terrorist attack on an Israeli family this past weekend that has left me deeply saddened and angry. It has always been my policy to steer clear of religious and political topics on this site so please understand that this post is not about politics or religion. You don't have to be Jewish to appreciate it's meaning or to dream for peace, or at least for a world in which innocent children are safe while sleeping in their beds at night.

My 5 year old niece, who until recently lived in Israel and is now in England, sang this song to me over the phone last month. It was her birthday gift to me and she had no idea that it is my favorite song. These lyrics sounded especially poignant when sung by her young, sweet & innocent voice; I couldn't help hearing her voice singing this song again yesterday when I read this news. May you have a peaceful week.

For those of you are cannot watch the video, here are the lyrics for One Day by Matisyahu Sometimes I lay
Under the moon
And thank God I'm breathing
Then I prayDon't take me soonCause I am here for a reasonSometimes in my tears I drownBut I never let it get me downSo when negativity surroundsI know some day it'll all turn aroundBecause all my life I've been waiting forI've been praying for For the people to sayThat we don't wanna fight no moreThey'll be no more warsAnd our children will playOne day x6It's not aboutWin or lose causeWe all loseWhen they feed on the souls of the innocentBlood drenched pavementKeep on moving though the waters stay ragingIn this maze you can lose your way (your way)It might drive you crazy but don't let it faze you no way (no way)Sometimes in my tears I drownBut I never let it get me downSo when negativity surroundsI know some day it'll all turn aroundBecause all my life I've been waiting forI've been praying forFor the people to sayThat we don't wanna fight no moreThey'll be no more warsAnd our children will playOne day x6One day this all will changeTreat people the sameStop with the violencedown with the hateOne day we'll all be freeAnd proud to beUnder the same sunSinging songs of freedom likeOne day x4All my life I've been waiting forI've been praying forFor the people to sayThat we don't wanna fight no moreThey'll be no more warsAnd our children will playOne day x6 Photobucket
