Why Shouldn't We Care?

Updated on June 2, 2013
God is great and life is good!
God is great and life is good!
We need clean air.
We need clean air.
storms may loom in the future
storms may loom in the future
calmer mornings shall break
calmer mornings shall break
More peaceful sunsets will we see.
More peaceful sunsets will we see.
All life is precious.
All life is precious.
all life deserves a chance to soar.
all life deserves a chance to soar.


Why should we care when young children cry,

and with the setting sun, their parents to die?

Why should we care if the trees are all gone,

that the creatures in need, then left alone?


When must we now all show our concerns,

as oceans are mixed, in acid that burns?

Can we see the need, or too late to plead,

in cleaner air we breathe, for life to succeed?


Why watch as fools, as children die in schools,

in their ancient walls, that break all the rules?

How many years must storms destroy a town,

Before someone builds a place more sound?


How many mistakes must a society to make,

to right the wrongs, when lives are at stake?

It's not a fond farewell, and just a parting remark,

Excusing the negligence, in a life that's so stark?


Why must politics dictate who lives and is to perish,

Those who shall benefit, from the rights we cherish?

And when will we ever learn, that love of our neighbors,

The greatest of regards, and so worthy of our labors?

,

Shouldn't we show that we have a human heart,

That every person must do their part?

And shouldn't we act, and as our Lord God meant,

when He said that each of us, to be heaven sent?

      Very good questions.If there is a thing I've learned in my life it's to not be afraid of the responsibility that comes with caring for other people. What we do for love: those things endure. Even if the people we do them for don't.
