WHAT MATTERS?

IT DOESN'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE WHAT COLOR YOU ARE,

BECAUSE LOVE SHOULD CONQUER ALL NEAR OR FAR

NOR DOES IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE WHY WE ARE HERE

BECAUSE IN THE END WE ALL HAVE THAT FEAR

THAT DEATH IS EVIDENT AND WE ALL WILL DIE,

BUT WHAT SHOULD MATTER ARE THE BLUE SKIES AND SUN

AND WHAT WE ALL CAN DO TO LIVE TOGETHER PEACEFULLY AS ONE.

 

WHAT MATTERS IS THE AIR WE BREATHE,

THE STARVING PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD WE NEED TO FEED

THE PRECIOUS MEANING OF LIFE ITSELF,

IN WHATEVER SITUATION WE FIND OURSELVES

THE ENDLESS EFFORTS TO FIND A CURE FOR AIDS,

THROUGH BENEFITS AND CHARITIES WITH FUNDS THAT ARE RAISED.

 

WHAT MATTERS IS THE OPPORTUNITY WE ALL SHARE

WHEN WE ARE HEALTHY AND ALIVE.

BECAUSE WITH THE WAY THE WORLD IS TODAY

IT'S A NEVER ENDING STRUGGLE TO SURVIVE.

LIFE IS WHAT MATTERS,SO LIVE IT,LOVE IT,OR LEAVE IT BE

BECAUSE WE ARE NOT HERE FOR ETERNITY.
