Heal the World…

Heal the World

When I close my eyes…

I see a child in hunger and bare

And all I had was his picture to share

Wonder How humanity cries

 

When I close my eyes…

I see a blood-torn battleground

And all I did was buy beer next round

Wonder Why the brethren dries

 

When I close my eyes…

I see broken bones of a dame such beauty

And all I did was played Call of Duty

Wonder Where such monsters reside

 

When I close my eyes…

I see a mountain of piling plastic

And the concern is if my shoes are fantastic

Wonder When the Earth will rise

 

When I close my eyes…

I see bigotry and slur built of thorn

And all I check is which color he’s born

Wonder What is human despise

  

When I open my eyes…

With the heart so hollow, I’ll go on a hunt

To search my soul; To find what’s burnt

And Heal the World before it dies

 

So our children can see how birds fly…

– Adi Singla (18-April ’14)
