Unfortunate (ft. Hullabaloo22)

(Verse One - Sohail)

As a human race,
We can be so ungrateful,
We have everything and more,
Yet we still complain,
I find it distasteful,
There are people around the globe,
With nothing to eat or drink,
Walking around with very little clothing,
We're so fortunate to have the life we live..
.

(Verse Two - Hullabaloo22)

But there’s no need to look around the globe,
To see suffering, hunger and need,
In every city, town and village,
You’ll find plenty of people,
Without food on their table,
Without heat in their house,
Clothes that barely fit at all,
And shoes that have seen better days,
Where debt has come and drowned the will,
Where freedom from it is so far still,
Where every day feels like a climb uphill,
With no hope of reaching the top,
Mistrust has been encouraged,
Stirred up amongst many groups,
Human pride, refusing pity,
And this is rampant in every town, village and city,
I do not beg, take your money, I’ve still got a leg to stand on...

(Verse Three - Sohail)

I remember when I never appreciated the life I have,
I always had that desire for more, 
That boastful nature, 
I may have been financially stable, 
But my attitude was poor,
In the eyes of the less fortunate, 
My life is somewhat paradise,
Everyone has money, 
But its not something everyone would sacrifice,
Its not enough to simply acknowledge the less fortunate,
Actions speak louder than understanding,
Maybe we should try to give a lot more,
Instead of just arrogantly demanding...
