Where Are You?

There’s something I want to talk about.
Where are you?
There’s something serious
I have to tell you right now.

It’s not about love.
It’s not about me.
It’s about the world we live in.
It’s about the way thing ought to be.

There are so many things that are wrong.
Where are you?
Don’t you care that our world is dying?
It’s been killing us all along.

Every day in the news is news of death.
Every day is a contest.
Our leaders simply want to win their wars,
but the wounds they leave are the people’s scars.

Scars of a world gone mad.
Wounds of the starving and the sad.
Pictures of turmoil and despair –
a world on the brink of nowhere.

It’s time to talk about love.
It’s time to think about you and me.
It’s time to heal the world we live in.
It’s time our world was the way it should be.

But I can’t change the world without you.
Where are you?
It’s going to take both of us and all of us
to do what we have to do.

To build a world of love.
To build a world for you and me.
To feel safe in the world we live in.
To remake our world the way it ought to be.
