When People Gather
The news is published everywhere
It tells us the world is in disrepair
Maybe you turn and pretend it’s not there
Maybe you consume the news in despair
Maybe you say that you’re not political
What a privilege you have, that’s not typical!
Things only seem to get worse by the day
Floods and plagues, corruption, decay
While thoughts and prayers might be a gesture
Stand up, be proactive or the problems fester
These are man-made issues and ours to undo
Where do we start? You haven’t a clue.
“Well there’s nothing that just I can do”
But what if your neighbour thought that too?
And their neighbour thought they didn’t matter
Changes happen when people gather
UN-aligned’s message is loud and clear
The earth is for sharing, all welcome here.
