We wake up.
Some of us go to work. Others go to school.
And the trees sway in the wind.
People fight. Bombs go off.
And the river still flows.
A man gets killed. People riot.
And the birds still sing.
The world does not stop for anyone.
When you think no one is listening,
Look up at the trees.
Look up at the clouds.
Look down at the grass.
Look down at the sand.
They watch everything we do.
They listen to everything we say.
Sometimes the best listeners are those who can't respond.
A little girl cries for her mother.
The trees rustle in the wind.
