I the witness

Standard

I am a witness to life

With all its love and its kindness

I am a witness to life

With its inspiration and light

But I’ve also seen the darkness

The hatred and the wars

I’ve seen so much jealousy and envy

As I’ve walked the water course

Of the river of life

That runs calm but then wild

I am a witness to life

That sees the innocence in a child

Yet I’ve seen children mistreated

Killed an often abused

And this is never something

That can ever be excused

I am a witness to life

And i can’t helped but by moved

But I am often confused

By some peoples attitudes

They cheer on men fighting wars

And mock those who seek peace

I am a witness to life

And all its dualities

And its cruelty to other species

As well as our own humanity

It’s disregard for nature

That ensures we exist

I am a witness to life

And it’s hard to understand it

With its lack of equality

And its double standards

Where some live in luxury

And others in poverty

Some live in big mansions

Some in boxes on the streets

I am a witness to life

But I still retain hope

I still retain the love and kindness

That some may never know

I am a witness to life

Both its wrongs and its rights

And I’ve learnt what’s important

Is to focus on what is inside

And be the best that you can be

And hope others one day see

And follow the same path

Towards love and doing good deeds

In this life that we witness

And all that we learn and we see.
