Another World is Waiting’ by poet Jenny Lewis and composer Janet Davey, performed by the artists, 7 March 2022

My friend Janet Davey wrote this beautiful short piano piece which inspired me to write some words. Majida Al-Sayegh has kindly made it into a video for us called ANOTHER WORLD IS WAITING. We would like to share it with you on this International Women’s Day. Here are the words:

‘Another World is Waiting’

The lamps are going out

it is getting dusk

but there is still time for freedom

the world has closed its doors

the long corridors darken

the flowers we sowed in spring

are passing away

but another world is possible

another world is waiting

a world of peace and harmony

a world of trust and safety

The lamps are going out

it is getting dusk

but there is still time, still time for freedom
