Repetitive - Poem by AHO Speaks

Why do we have pain and sorrow
Why are some cured while others wait for tomorrow?
Why are some poor and others of wealth
Why are some sick and others in good health?

Why are some slaves while others are free
Is it because you are waiting to see?
Will man assume prime responsibility in life
To expend his energy to end the strife?

The world is yours but time is given to us
How long will it take to fulfill the trust?
Such important questions but if we do not ask
Can we receive the answer to fulfill the task?

Don't squander time and add nothing to the estate
Help one another before it is too late.
