When did we reach the point When we stopped caring? Has it always been Within us Hidden behind Good intentions That aren't really good Bubbeling just beneath Our surface Waiting to erupt At some horrific moment That we knew was coming But that we were unwilling to prepare for?
When did we Forget how to feel Kindness Compassion Love Has our heart Become so hardened That we no longer Know how to embrace The human experience? We live in a house of anger Where there resides Only hate
When did we Suddenly become blind To the turmoil And suffering Surrounding us? We are not Powerless to stop it Yet we do not even Attempt to try We let it go on We let it fester and boil Until it consumes Our very soul
Why can we No longer grieve? Has it become Too much for us? We can no longer Express how we feel For fear of showing Our weaknesses Have we become So individualistic That we have to grieve alone? Share with me your pain I will comfort you
Why has it become My problem Or your problem Instead of our problem? Help me Because I am this-- Instead of I am here How can I help? Please do not Turn your back on me Do not push me aside My struggle is your struggle
When did it get to the point Where we can no longer talk? You express your opinion I express mine We skim the surface We don't really listen We both want to be right We tiptoe around each other Always afraid To offend Offend me Tell me how You really feel
Why can't we accept responsibility For the actions we take For the mistakes That we ultimatley learn from For the things We don't really know That we do I blame you You blame me But we are both to blame Accept it and move on We can stop this decline If we only open our eyes
