As I Gaze Upon The World

Rating: 4.8

Whenever I see the world around me
I see the terrible sights around me
I see children working around me
I see people, starving to death around me
I see burnt houses around me
But I can't do anything to stop this around me
Most importantly I see people
Crying for peace around me
As I raise my voice for plea
Is there anyone to bring equality?

People are begging for tranquility
