What If... (To Be Human)
what if we went to war,
and just stopped?
what if we did what we do best,
and quit worrying about profit?
what if we housed the homeless,
and fed the hungry?
what if we were blinded
to the color of skin?
what if we did away with religions,
and searched the spiritual?
what if we forgave all debts,
and gave away what we owned?
what if we overthrew governments,
and became governments of people...
that chose to work together?
what if we quit drilling oil,
and found another way?
what if we destroyed
every nuclear weapon?
what if we saw each other as equal,
and acted on it?
what if we took the chance,
and dared to be human?
