Man in the Mirror

Everytime i look towards the man in the mirror
he asks me-"where the world is heading to, why is every one in terror
why people slay each other,when they are all brothers
why we keep everything at stake
for mere peices of papers,
why we hav to fight to ensure we get our right
why we hav to weep and plead for what we need
why people run behind luxuries when heir brothers die of starvation
yet they don't shed a tear for this atrocious crime......

Admist of all his questions, I reply
be the change u want and everythin's gonna be alright.

    The gluttony and self indulgence of the world are it's own undoing unless we can join hands to stop it. Your words here are so true and you have said it very well. May the sun bring you warmth and the moon bring you peace. TLee
