I Donít Understand

 

 

I donít understand

 

Why we canít have morality without dictating religion.

 

Why we canít have differences without hatred.

 

Why we canít have disagreements without belittlements.

 

Why we canít love a higher spirit, but each in our own way.

 

Why we canít feed the homeless but can rebuild the world.

 

Why we canít find charity for our neighbors but can pray for a stranger.

 

Why we canít see our own faults but can so easily find them in others.

 

Why we canít see the good but so readily point out the bad.

 

 

 

 

I donít understand

 

Why love doesnít return the gift of generosity.

 

Why we profess to value honesty then lie to protect ourselves.

 

Why success canít be won without deceit.

 

Why we abuse the world but cherish possessions.

 

Why profit means more than the method that achieves it.

 

Why what people say isnít what they mean.

 

 

 

 

I donít understand

 

Why we complain more about what we donít have

instead of seeing what weíve already been given.

 

Why we want so much

when itís usually the simple things that make us happy.

 

Why we try to be someone and something we arenít

instead of celebrating who we truly are.

 

Why we arenít more thankful for the people in our lives

instead of the things in our lives.
