If I Could....(The Condition of Humanity)

If I could cast my eyes
      to the skies
Surely the heavy raindrops
 would represent my cries

If I could cast my ears to the sea
She never come upon shore peacefully,
  but crash upon the grainy sand,
 looking to heal the souls of man

If I could throw my feelings in the wind
  the trees would cringe and bend
 while earthly beasts look upward
         every now and then,
Wondering why man go through such
        heartache for sin

If I could throw my heart to the earth
Maybe some of the souls she took in death
  She'll prevent at birth
before their hard struggles start...
      because she has a heart

If I could give my tongue to the stars,
   Their sparkle would shine bright
            in the night  
Praying God meet the needs
      of the helpless seeds
           down here
While singing prayerful songs
   with words oh so sincere

If I could give my feet to the
          morning light
She'd take the poor something to eat
     in the long impatience night
  Even while the shadows appear
   They'll surely thank God for
        something to bite
   while Morning sheds a tear

O if I could....
