I see humans

But no humanity

Why do people treat others so savagely?

I want to live in a world where kindness exists

I want to live in a world better than this


Everywhere I go I see people getting hurt

I see people leaving others lying in the dirt

Starved children without a home

Many people lost and alone

Death and destruction

Lies and corruption

I see stabbings and abduction


Why does nobody care anymore?

Why is everyone always at war?

We need to treat people the way we would like to be treated

We need to stop being cruel and conceited


Even after all these terrible things

I still have faith in what the future brings

I will always believe that humanity will change

And I am determined to see this happen no matter how long it takes
