RAIN FROM YOUR EYES

Glittering stars
Covering scars,
Comfort and ease
Hiding disease.

There’s a famine in me,
A famine in you
To make the world see
What they put us through.

News of the rich
Becoming more rich,
No news of the poor
Of what they endure.

And it all makes me cry,
It all makes me shout.
Why do they have to die?
Couldn’t we just reach out?

Diamonds and pearls,
Yachts, cars and furs,
Their only role:
Wrap an empty soul.

Trembling hands
And slippery feet
Searching for friends,
On the verge of the pit.

Your heart’s not a desert.
I see rain from your eyes.
A child is a present
God brings in our lives.

War, thirst and starvation -
A child’s dying tonight.
You could bring salvation,
You can make it all right.

When you make your prayer tonight,
Think of those with no power to fight.
Put yourself, for once, in their place
And then try to put a smile on their face.
