Selfish


we live in a world where the focus is "me"
move away from the mirror, then we will see

look for awhile at the problems of others
the ailing, the beggars, the single mothers

hospitals full of people fighting poor health
streets for the homeless without having much wealth

even look at your friends, what are they feeling?
unhappy, sad, mad.. what aren't they revealing?

Issues appear in many different ways
they can be permanent or just a phase

they are all important to those they affect
pay attention to others, show them respect

no matter the condition, people want friends
let us give some care now before the time ends

whether ten years or eighty, life is so short
Now during their struggles they need our support

Take a second, step away from the mirror
look around and the real problems seem clearer
