It's About

by mtpoet11

It's about time, we take a hard look!
It's about need! Our world's been shook
It's about hope and finding a way
To all live together, this course we must stay

It's about greed and wanting too much
It's about giving and staying in touch
It's about having all that we want
Some want too much, those it will haunt

It's about hate and the reasons why
It's about love, but this we deny
It's about religion, of a different kind
We don't understand, we won't take the time

It's about taking and never giving back
It's about shame! That's where we're at
It's about waiting and not finding a way
To save our world, we all need to pray

It's about leaving something for the future
It's about caring, about every culture
It's about you and it's about me
Do we care enough? Because, it's about peace!!
