Why Do We? - Poem by Randy McClave
Why do we kill, and not heal
Why do we starve and go hungry,
Why do we have poor, and also war
Do we not all live in a Christian country?
Why do we need, and also have greed
Why do we have guns and also bombs,
Why do we judge, must we all own a grudge
Do we not all pray? And read psalms.
Why do we care, about another's prayer
Why do we persecute and then classify,
Why do we hope, and then wish and cope
Do we not notice the stone in our own eye?
Why do we hate, is that our fate
Why do we have jealousy and also fear,
Why do we riot, why not just be quiet
Doesn't anyone ever truly listen or hear.
Why do we preach, and not teach
Why do we ridicule and then sacrifice,
Why do we worry of wealth, and not our health
Do we not all know about Christ?
Why do we fight, and not peacefully recite
Why do we act prudish and prestigious,
Why do we stumble, when we humble
Do we not believe that we all are religious
Why do we live, if not to give
Why do we forget and not ever want to bother,
Why do we not save, are we all not destined for the grave
Do we not realize that we all share the same Heavenly Father.
