Can’t We All Just Get Along?

A soldier lies in wait
Then brings the scope to his eye
Within him there is no hate
And yet a stranger must die

A bully stays out of sight
To ambush his prey
A little boy lives in fright
Dreading each and everyday

A daughter cringes in her room
At her parents shouts
Another life filled with gloom
Nothing in her heart but doubts

A desperate soul stares at nothing
As people pass with no empathy
He asks for change, for anything
But for a beggar there is no sympathy

A humanity turns on itself
Selfishly taking everything to own
Why can’t we forget about self?
And see we are not alone?
