A Desperate Voice.
Where did we lose the compassion?
What was the moment?
When we switched off our humanity.
Were there tell tale signs of our ever present egos
Working over time.
Was there ever a time?
When a desperate voice
Went as unheard as it does right now
While the cry for help becomes overwhelming
We close our ears and hope that it
Will never be ours to bear
When we all sit in the same boat together.
Worship each other not the material goods
We have been taught to treasure
Women, Men The Old and The New
Wives, Children, Mothers, Sons and Daughters
Worship them not the things that
When all is said and done
Will never give you the love that you need to survive.
Welfare for our fellow man
When we all pull together and make a stand
We all win and desperate voices
Will be no more.
Altruistic I know but
