Both Worlds seem Hopeless

You worry about your hair
When a strand is out of place
Have everything you need
To hide the marks that's on your face

You have issues with your weight
Different on every limb 
Thinner here thicker there
To resemble a bowling pin

You want your skin a little darker
But your face a shade too light
And you'll only smile in photographs 
When your teeth is the perfect white

You complain when it is cold
And also can't stand the heat
But you know that you can change it
With the mere flip of a switch

You need the latest trends in fashion
Accessories made from pearl

All of these concerns cloud your mind
From real issues within the world

Did you ever think about the girl
That wishes she had hair
The boy that prays for shelter
Or a piece of cloth to wear

The man that has no bread
Not even a sip of water
Collecting crumbs wherever he can
In an attempt to feed his daughter

Or the lady that lost her world
Through a tragic natural force
That has given up all forms of hope
And no belief to reinforce

It's sad to see that both worlds
Seem to be a little hopeless

But with your loving heart and healing hands
Lets try and shift this focus!
