A World Apart

Everywhere people seeing with sightless eyes.

Feeling with closed hearts.

Distancing themselves from another's reality.

Over looking the fallen, the helpless, the beaten down and the broken.

Offering empty words of consolation.

Empty promises of help to come.

If the power to change one thing were to be given to me.

I would open people's eyes to others pain-

And to what they can do to help.

I would open people's hearts to what others must feel-

And to what they can do to make that feeling happiness.

I would bring people to see that a world apart is no distance at all.

One person's pain is everyone's pain.

It is our duty not to ignore it-

But to care

To do all we can

To help.
