How am I
To live a meaningful life
In a world full of misery
Inhumanity and strife

To dodge all the pitfalls
That lead us all to sin
Knowing good and well
It’s a battle we’ll never win

How am I
To be able to cope
In a society full racism
And a world who’s lost hope

To be reassured of a future
Where mankind still has a place
On this planet we have treated
With devastation and disgrace

How am I
To teach my children to cope
To surpass my expectations
Is there even still hope?

Will they be left with a planet
***** and poisoned beyond repair
A wasteland of religious hatred
Do we even really care?

How are “WE”
As a species expect to survive
If we all continue with the mind set
That only “MY” race and religion
Deserve to be alive.
