Global Disaster

 

Hunger, War, Hatred

Global disasters

But we do nothing

Are there any answers?

 

What is there to do

But watch terrorists dance in their triumphant defeat?

What is there to do

But watch as the destruction of humanity is complete?

 

Watch as the African son goes hungry

Watch as his mother dies from the birth of AIDS

Motherless

He’s forced to pick up the LRA’s blades

 

What is there to do?

 

Soldiers are sent to fight for the wealth of our country

For the pride of Red, White and Blue

Kill’em all, kill’em all are our chants

Listen to them chant our chants too!

 

What is there to do?

 

When we aren’t better than they in our own country

Your skin is better than my skin

My skin is better than your skin

Doesn’t our hearts beat the same within?

 

Aren’t we all created in the image of Him?

Who’s to say who’s who?

When you’re no better than I

And I’m no better than you?

 

What are we to do?

 

Hunger, War, Hatred

Global disasters

But we do nothing

Are there any answers?
