It’s a slippery slope we’re sliding on
Considering that we share the world we’re biding on—
One city’s flood
Is another city’s mud
It may not be that a tsunami begins by butterfly wings
But it can be triggered by so many other things
Depending on where our thoughts have gone—
Or who it is we are depending on—
Will we do what is right and choose to be kind
Or be self-serving and pretend to be blind?
Will we recognize what’s wrong and know it?
Or will we do what is right and show it?
Be careful with promises and threats
Be suspicious of false bets
Too much ego can take us too far to turn back
Too much anger can lay down the track
To a destination that leads only one way
To a place where we all must pay.
But it’s still it’s not too late
To work together to overturn hate
And overlook all things that divide us
And bring out all the good that’s inside us.
