"Don't cry because it's over,
Smile because it happened."

-Dr. Suess

There are a lot of things going on,
But still I need to stay strong,
We take things for granted to much,
Because we never think about such.

There are millions of people out there dying,
And there are tons of little children crying,
But all we think about is stupid boys,
We focus on suffering instead of our joys.

We worry what other people think about,
But caring about others is something I doubt,
There are children out there who don't have a home,
And some who have scars cut deep in their bone.

There are some children who have the need to run and hide,
A lot of people have loved ones who have recently died,
People who love without hearing God's plan,
People who have disabilities and just don't understand.

Sometimes we think it's just a joke,
And some people think it is cool to smoke,
But there are some people out there who obsess,
And their lungs turn into a big black mess.

There are some people going through divorce,
Some people that are just full of remorse,
Some people who don't have a family,
Some people who are locked up because of their insanity.

People who are bullied and can't fight back,
People who suffer from severe heart attacks,
People who can never please anyone,
People who never get to have any fun.

I'm not trying to make you upset,
But one day you will regret,
Not thinking about anyone but you,
I guess we'll see what karma's gonna do.

The only thing that can cause an interference,
Is judging people by their physical appearance,
You never know someone's back story,
It could be very sad or very gory.

So care for others and just flash a smile,
Because if you never do your life will be vile,
So make the best of everything and don't be sad,
And forget about the past because future is all we have.
