I start up in the North
I grow from special seed
I sprinkle it with sensibility
From French and Hungarian snow
I linger in the sprouting until my engine's full.

Then I move across the sea
To European bliss
To language of poets
As I cut the cord of home
I kiss my Mother's Mother
Look to the horizon.

Wide eyed, new ground
Humbled by my new surroundings.

I am a citizen of the planet
My president is Kwan Yin
My frontier is on an airplane
My prisons: homes for rehabilitating.

Then I fly back to my nest
I fly back with my nuclear
But everything is different.

So I wait
My yearn for home is broadened
Patriotism expanded
By callings from beyond.

So I pack my things
Nothing precious; all things sacred.

I am a citizen of the planet
My laws are all of attraction
My punishments are consequences
Separating from source the original sin.

I am a citizen of the planet
Democracy's kids are sovereign
Where the teachers are the sages
And pedestals fill with every parent.

And so, next few years are blurry
The next decade's a flurry
Of smells and tastes unknown.

Threads sewn straight through this fabric
Through fields of every color
One culture to another.

I come alive and I get giddy
I am taken and globally naturalized.

I am a citizen of the planet
From simple roots through high vision
I am guarded by the angels
And my body guides the direction I go in.

I am a citizen of the planet
My favorite past time: edge stretching
Besotten with human condition
These ideals are born from my deepest within.
