Do We Accept - Poem by Lyn Paul

Why are there people struggling to live
Why are there people wanting to give
Why are there people feeling such pain
Why are there people with nothing to gain
Why are there people full of greed
Why are there people desperate to succeed
Why are there people with hatred for all
Why are there people not wanting to fall
Why are there people dying each day
Do we accept that this is okay

    Why are there people struggling to live
    Sometimes that will motivate them to be greater.

    Why are there people wanting to give
    Because there always people that asking for it and to accept

    Why are there people feeling such pain
    Because pain is part of growing..everyone does nobody excluded..it made us human

    Why are there people with nothing to gain
    We will gain in different ways..as long give up is not our choice

    Why are there people full of greed
    Because sometimes people are blind about good life and karma

    Why are there people desperate to succeed
    Because we are thought like that, to live different we taught to not to

    Why are there people with hatred for all
    Because their heart lack of loves, give some

    Why are there people not wanting to fall
    Because it make us in pain and we afraid that we cant make it well again

    Why are there people dying each day
    Because life is a short, a subway to eternity

    Do we accept that this is okay
    Be positive and fight to get well otherwise nothing will be fine

    If we can help people somehow, that is the best...to not in pain or sad
    that is what life beauty is about, to circulate love and compassion
    People can be bad, we should not be one because we making whole become more bad
    although if we only can be the only one good, at least not its better than make all bad
    but believe what is right and wrong because God will return your favor back to u,
    hope i answer you dear Lyn
