If Everyone Cared

by aDORKable x3   Apr 1, 2007

Dear Mister President, I have some words to say.
Will you listen to me or turn your head away?
I'm nothing special, but I speak my mind.
And this is something that I have come to find.

If everyone cared, then no one would die.
Did you ever stop and think about why?
People are killing and people are crying;
All because some people are lying.

If everyone cared, would we still be fighting?
If we cared, then I wouldn't be writing.
Stop the war; get our forces home.
We can't deal with being alone.

Men torn from families; women left alone.
They're being hardened by each bomb thrown.
Help our families, please bring them back.
Stop the fighting and the attacks.

Don't you see that if everyone cared,
No one would lie; no one would dare.
Hurtful words would never be spoken;
Leaving people with hearts, broken.

If everyone cared, no one would be dead.
We wouldn't have to worry; we wouldn't have to dread.
All the stories on the news, filled with scary sorrows.
All the women and the men, scared about tomorrow.

Dear Mister President, Please lend me a moment or two.
I know that you have the time to stop what we go through.
Look at our lives; we are all living scared.
It would be different, If Everyone Cared.
