A question that I’ve been asking since the age of five,
Why, with all the hate and the anger and the lies?
Why has it taken so long for the world to realise
Why we fail to hear all those shouts and all those cries.
A self interested person born from a self interested world,
Who focuses on themselves rather than watching others unfurl.
As a mere viewer of the convoluted, chaotic current affairs
I ask you now to stop putting on airs.
Together we can, we will, we must
Put on our brave faces and start to act tough.
I’m not talking about battle or war of any kind;
I talk about solidarity and hope for mankind.
