Why

 

Why all the selfishness and blind hatred

 

causing much inequality and sorrow,

 

when we are here today

 

and then gone tomorrow?

 

 

 

We should instead love and care for one another

 

because we are in essence all one,

 

and from the fibers of each and every soul

 

a seamless weave is being spun.

 

 

 

So if there really is no us

 

as opposed to them,

 

who could we take advantage of

 

and who would we condemn?

 

 

 

Can we then harm another

 

without also feeling the pain,

 

how long can we ignore those dark clouds

 

and that harsh pelting of cold rain?

 

 

 

In every single day, we have a chance

 

to show kindness, compassion, and respect.

 

We owe our children an honorable example,

 

which is an obligation we can’t afford to neglect.

 

 

 

Everything of this world is temporary

 

and our years here are indeed too few,

 

we need to try and get the big picture straight

 

before we must leave, me and you.
