There are things we cannot hide

one is self another is pride

These are things that cause others pain

 they are only for our own gain


It is so sad that people don’t see

what a wonderful world this could be

If we thought about others and not about self

 true love would not be left on a shelf


Why is it we try to impress

why do we not try to bless?

Why not think before we act

why not love before we attack?


This world could be a place of peace

if all selfishness was to decrease

This really could happen it could be real

if we forgot about self and began to feel
