IS IT THE CASE

IS IT THE CASE



Is it the case that
Lands are small, to contain all of us, 
Or that
Our hearts are not big enough to love?

Is it the case that
Seas and oceans are narrow for our ships to pass
Or that
Our minds are not wide open?
 
Is it the case that 
Food is scarce the hungry of the world to feed, 
Or that
Greediness of certain men is so great?
 
Is it the case that 
Concern for our fellow human is infrequent 
Or that
Indifference is incessant?

Whatever the answers may be, 
My dear brother, 
My loving sister,  
This question must be 
Answered first:

How HOLY, for someone it is 
His happiness to built
Over 
The unhappiness of 
OTHERS?
