Have you ever dreamed of a better world? What’s it like? Where is it? Can you see it? Smell it? Taste it? How will you reach for it? My better world is a place where everyone and their heart is truly equal. A world where we truly open our eyes and our hearts to all those in need, no matter where they happened to be born, the colour of their skin or what god they worship. It’s those walking through uncharted territories that set the path for those left behind. Here’s to my personal wish that we collectively wake up and truly reach for the stars. Icarus’ Lullaby is available on itunes and spotify as part of Kalon Rae’s EP ‘The Day That I Was Killed”.
