Not understanding
Not even caring
That's how we hurt others
That's what happens when we get hurt
That's what happens to a child
As it is forced to change
Some will survive
Being as they should be
By understanding
But too many will have hang-ups upon hang-ups
Fears upon fear
Most of us will worry too much to care
Not matter how good we have it
We will always complain
It will never be fair
And it never is
Until we learn to care
At any time we can stop
Reach out
and reach in
Look around
and look within
There is nothing to judge
There is no reason for condemning
None of us knew what we were doing
And we have already been forgiven
Let's just understand each other
And help one another
That's all our creator wants
In order for the kingdom of heaven to happen
We must be as we were meant to be
