Take A Walk With Me

Inspired by the song 'Dear Mr. President' by Pink.

Come hold my hand,
Take a walk with me,
Lets pretend we are just two people,
And you're just another person like me.

Look over there, see that person living on the streets?
Imagine what it's like for him every time he goes to sleep,
When he's got no reflection to look at and he doesn't even care,
When all he wants to do is keep warm in the night air.

How do you smile whilst others just cry?
When a mother loses her child how can you just turn a blind eye?
How do you keep your pride firmly in place?
Can you even look at me with an understanding face?

How can you say no human is left behind?
How can you ignore us like you're deaf or even blind?
They're all sitting wanting an answer,
Why are murders still at large? Where's the cure for all cancer?

A father's in the wrong when takes his daughters rights away,
When he only does it to keep pain and hurt away,
How can you allow this to carry on?
What if it was happening to your daughter or son?

Let me show you something about normal people everyday,
Working hours for peanuts with a baby on the way,
Let me tell you a true story of a real hero,
Those fighting bombs, dodging death as they go.

How do you sleep peacefully in your bed?
How can you walk with a proud clear head?
We both know you'd never take a walk with me,
'Coz everything in reality is something you don't want to see.
