Us - Poem by Deborah Skannal

Where is our vision?
Where is our view?
We stand masquerading, wondering what shall we do
People are marching onward, as we face the day
But we are found sleeping, as our lives are taken away.
We must walk together as if we are side by side.
We must be stronger than ever as we renew our pride.
Where is our vision?
Where is our view?
We are destroying one another as time progresses on.
I thought you were my brother, but I don't know where you belong.
We must walk together, this is the only way.
We must be stronger than ever, as we face the day.
We will be one, when our view becomes a clear.
The vision is within me and you,
For it is very near.
