Rise we cannot from our deep slumber

whilst we don’t change the ways we think
Walk we cannot out of our misery
whist we think we can drown them in just a drink
Sleep we cannot with peace at night
if the truth we don’t employ
Rest we cannot after a day’s work
if we haven’t toiled our worth in joy
In the eye we cannot, see of those we love
if in our own eyes, we continue to wrong
comfort we cannot bring with false speech
just coz that speech is a song
Desire we cannot what we don’t deserve
what with our work we haven’t proven thus
Love we cannot another human
until we learn to accept one who is nothing like us
