Will you reach and take my hand?

As I reach and extend friendship,
will you reach and take my hand?
Will your footsteps be unfaltering as we straddle distant lands?
Will you embrace all that join us?
Grasp! diversity?
then ours can be the founding link in a chain of harmony.

We shall span cascading oceans.
We shall endure troubled seas.
We shall climb the highest mountains.
We shall traverse peaks and leas.
We shall conquer ice and desert.
We shall snake the swamps and trees.
Our call shall rise upon the wind
and echo with each breeze.

For it matters not what colour
it matters not what creed
it matters not affliction
it matters not what deed.
Hand in hand we’ll forge our chain and harmony shall proceed
to swell our strength till we are one
for link is what we need.

I set forth on this journey
I seek without demand
I offer you my friendship

will you reach and take my hand?
