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.
