Give an ear to the down-trodden
Let's sing the rhythm in their hearts
May their torture, we try comfort
For through darkness, can our lights shine

There's a voice in dire suppression
Collapsing into depression
but like angels on a mission
Mercy aint poor contribution

When you cry for your worn-out shoes
Recall the gem on a wheelchair
Ask after him, whose limbs are gone
Then, be sure to count yourself blessed!

Have you been a failure in class?
Cry not for skills you couldn't learn
Br grateful instead, for those gained
The imbecile, wished he were you

I hear your tears over again
Wondering if there were still hope left
I can assure you from my heart
Just the broken, can be mended..

    You may not have intended this to be funny, but I found myself chuckle! All of what you say is so true, Marvellous.

    How stupid we humans are to always look at the greener grass;)

    Welcome to the club, you are a wonderful and promising asset:)

    5/5 Ingrid
