Looking out the window



LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW
Looking out the window, thinking of life.
The world is so simple, why such strife?
A breath is a breath, no matter whose,
So why is there such discord among Muslims, Christians and Jews?
Just take a look at the world and they you will know.
Everyone's talking of peace, but who wants to show?
Sitting in the basement, if front of our friends,
Bush is like this, Saddam is like that.
Darwin thinks he knows, but he only pretends.
Over the family dinner someone says,
The world is so ignorant, you know it's a fact.
So easy to say, so difficult to act.
A smile is a smile, no matter whose,
So why are we so obsessed with the material things of this world?
A doctor studies with luxury in mind,
A businessman is looking for the finest Mercedes he can find.
But where is he or she who only wants to improve the world?
A child is a child, no matter whose,
But why are we so caught up in trying to win and not lose?
We are all brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers,
Sons and daughters.
Each of us has a face, a story, yet who every bothers?
Why these veils of ignorance, why all of this insanity?
Let us work together and build bridges in humanity.
