We live in a world where others suffer from privation
Forced into a situation of starvation
Yet there is enough to share among all nations
It’s only money and power that stops this from happening.
Food is the now a precious commodity
And we’ve accepted it with our conformity
So many others going without yet we continue to sate our greed
Buying and eating far more than we need
We waste more than the 3rd world eats
This seems very uncaring and so very cruel to me
So we pay the price through obesity
Rising levels of diabetes
Is this karma paying us back
For lack of balance and an unwillingness to act
Some many people living comfortable lives
Don’t want change so close their eyes
And get so defensive when you raise it with them
Say its not their problem.
We live in a world unbalanced
We live in world where too few care
We live in a world that doesn’t seem to want to change
To ensure everyone gets a fair share
Stand up for change I dare
And change the future for half the world out there.
