Wake Up

People only listen when I stop talking
Will only appreciate me when I stop walking.

Can't make time to help a stranger
That to me, is the real danger.

But how could we as a people move forward?
By working together, like we all should.

We have more tools now than ever.
Now we have fools that don't work together.

People value race over life.
Fighting with words has been replaced with a knife.

War is not the answer, for sure,
But this has all happened before.

People need to take up a stand.
We don't need to break up the band.

Hopefully, the masses get quite a shake up,
Maybe big enough, for all of you to wake up.
