While we live at leisure in peace
Countless live in fear of war.
While we sleep safe, tucked in our bed
Countless are fleeing their homes
With rising terror and conflicts
There are countless deaths and destruction.
While we take our breath of air for granted
Countless gasp for a breath of air.
While we drink and make merry
Countless thirst for a gulp of water
While some children have pillow fights & pyjama parties.
Countless have no bed or clothes on them.
While we choose to waste the food on our
Countless starve, with no food to eat.
Many things we take for granted
Many things that we can help alter.
About time we cared in our sensing of the why.
As every one of those countless faces matter between the you and I.
Realization of love, compassion and connection within and the ensuing actions in empathy is the beginning of true wisdom.
Lets make way for a peaceful world.
