Poem - Chilean Miners

The man on tv is smiling
He seems at peace with himself
He's a miner living in a hole

The man watching tv isn't smiling
He's feeling sorry for himself
He's a miner living in turmoil

The man in the hole
Is loved by the world
He's the one with the problem
He's the one with the smile

The man on tv may be dying
He's seems ready to meet God
He's a miner who has been forgiven

The man watching tv is living
He seems like he's ignoring God
He's a miner who missed the road to heaven

The man in the hole
Is loved by the world
He's the one with the problem
He's the one with the smile

Death is near and one can only wait
You are closer to God and thinking about fate
The whole world comes to save you
But maybe you have a new point of view
There is so much love filling the hole
You feel you can float on the overflow

The man in the hole has a question for you
Why won't you forgive?
He's the one who knows this
He's knows how you should live

The man in the hole
Is loved by the world
He's the one with the problem
He's the one with the smile
