“buddha's backyard” (s. fisher/j. jackson)
inspired in asheville, nc. written on 09/29/16 in jacksonville beach, fl

I met Jesus in Buddha's backyard
they were both barefoot
they were both laughin'

they said 'why do you make life so hard?
we gave you free will
so why are you still a slave to yourself?'
I met Jesus in Buddha's backyard

I saw God in the eyes of a child
& in the reflection I saw where we came from

'cause we don't arrive fearfully wired
we're not born racist
we're born with mercy
how soon we forget
I saw God in the eyes of a child

So let the Earth be thy church
& let love be your temple
If you want heaven
Build your own heaven
It's really that simple

I'll find grace in the invalid
Grace in the poor
I'll find grace in the palm of my hand

I'll see grace in the atheist
The Torah, Quran
I'll find grace in whatever I can
