Look in the calm waters
The Angel & The Glass
Do you know how much I love you
Use The Gifts
I'll be the seasonal breeze

So often there is heartache.
So often there is strife.
So often there's no money
to help the ones that cry.
So many lay with emptiness
and hunger deep inside.
While governments with their big bucks
make plans to soar up high.
Whether it be tunnels underwater,
sky scrapers in the sky.
Man traveling to Mars
while others sit and die.
It breaks my heart to see
pain and suffering in the world.
More should be done to help.
Do stupid Government realize?
So many are just surviving
on small pay and little food.
While retiring governments
spend our money while
others shine their shoes.
Marlene Reid. 2004
