I Wonder Sometimes…

Wrapped up in our own worlds,

We somehow fail to see;

What the world outside,

Has come out to be;

We fail to explore, to search and find;

The true potential of the human mind;

Is it really this easy, to be selfish and vain?

To refuse to open our eyes and see the world’s pain?

I wonder sometimes, how good it would be,

If people could just let go of their vanity;

And dare to be different,

A cut above the rest,

And try to think, not just for themselves, but also for the rest.
