Why are we fighting?
Why are we rioting?
Why are we dying?
Why is this happening?

Why do we hate?
Why do we hide?
Why are we blind?
Why not be kind?

Why is this real?
Why don't we feel?
Why don't we care?
Why do they stare?

Why has this begun?
Why can't we end it?
Why bring a gun?
Why not forget it?

Why can't we smile?
Why do we frown?
Why do we cry?
Why put us down?
