HERE TO STAY

Many of us are sick and tired,
In the way the world is wired.
Violence is an epidemic,
Systematic and endemic.

No one ever seems to care.
It seems so rare to dare
To think about wrong or right.
Like animals, we just fight.

For so long, we watch and endure.
Our willingness is oh, so pure.
Whatever may come our way,
Humankind is here to stay.
