—written by Emily

Too many people are dying and crying
 
while being swept under society’s rug
 
Too many mothers are helplessly sighing
 
while dead beat dads walk off and shrug
 
 
 
What is the planet coming to,
 
as the whole world falls to it’s knees
 
Why can’t we all come together
 
to selflessly focus on others needs
 
 
 
Don’t turn your back on those in need
 
it could just as easily be you
 
who walks the roughest road and bleeds
 
without a single soul to turn to
 
 
 
Hold a trembling child
 
who pleadingly looks into your eyes
 
If only to give them a smile
 
and tell them that its alright
 
 
 
I’m not saying you should move mountains
 
just give freely whenever you can
 
For each child that we encourage
 
could someday grow to save this land
