Such a powerful word and so difficult to enact
Makes the idealists and dreamers have to face the fact
That not everyone in this world thinks the same
Even though an idea makes sense in one’s own brain
I believe acceptance stems from logic and morals
Those are what breathe life as if they are floral
The people’s roots dig deep underground
Grasping onto the idea nutrients they found
So, we remain quite solid in our own beliefs
Even in trivial matters like boxers or briefs
From the observance of life, can I suggest one thing?
Having compassion. Oh, the unity it would bring
Discarding the pessimism and trying to shine bright
Can truly help someone win a personal fight
Whether it be with money or the thought of suicide
Can you be the one to whom they confide?
To escape a lack of trust and find solidarity
Through acts of kindness, I can just feel the parity
Could we greet as friends despite our differences?
And not enclose ourselves within white picket fences?
Sometimes feeling the need to put the best defences
When, in reality, we are near defenseless.
I need you just as much as you need me.
So, why can’t we be united like a family?
