If I had to choose only one thing to change,
I would give compassion to those who lack.
Too much hate in a world so cold
And no one giving shirts off of their own back.
If I had countless amounts of money,
I would give it to the children on the streets.
I would travel the world and back
And feed the ones that don't get to eat.
If I had the time,
I would make the world less rotten.
I would ask what blessings they've recieved
To make their empathy for others forgotten.
It just so happens, I myself
Needed compassion for a while,
And one person lifted me up
With a kind word and a smile.
Can you imagine the change we'd see
If we all lent out a hand
Instead of worrying about ourselves
And our lavish, extensive plans?
I want to see more smiling,
More laughter, happiness, and hope.
I want to show the world what was given to me;
I want to help each individual cope.
Life is difficult enough
And we're hard enough on ourselves
There's no rhyme or reason for
Making things painful for anyone else.
You never truly know
What someone is going through,
But we can all give a helping hand
And it all starts with YOU.
