So many children suffer
From too little food.
Not enough to go around
For the entire brood.

Hear these words:

If one goes hungry
All do starve.
There’s no need for this
With so much meat to carve.

You live in a world
Of have and have not.
In some places there’s plenty.
Others nothing have got.

Why is there lack
When so much wealth abounds?
Consider the trumpet
As it blares out its sounds …

One note is loud
Yet the other quite soft.
One’s held out quite long
The other played oft.

Somewhere there is balance.
Somewhere in between.
This is the solution.
You must find the mean.

It all starts with seeing
Your face in the other.
Although he looks different,
Inside he’s your brother.

You must learn to love.
For this you are here.
When one suffers, you all do.
This should be quite clear.

Pray for the sinner
For he knows not the way.
Your love and compassion
Will hasten the day

When all taste forgiveness
And then understand
That when all think as one
You form a tight band.

And thus joined together
You learn and you grow.
In the spirit of love
To the heavens you go.
