I cry a tear for the world,
For the world has no sorrow,

No existance for the furture,
no dreams of tomorrow,

A tear for happiness,peace, and non-destruction.

To rid the earth of all evil
and corruption.

A tear for a change, and the love of
mankind.

A tear for all the unborn children,
before we all run out of time.

If You have time to think,
think of what you are doing?

To yourself, your family,your country,
your world.

Maybe we all could cry a few tears to wash
away our disgrace,
So we can start all over again, with a caring human race.

It might be too late! At life there is no second chance,no second decision, no second glance.

What have we done to ourselves? to eachother?
our world?

Just for money, just for pleasure, we have took from the earth....
All of its beauty, all of its love, all of its glorious treasures.

Its never too late!
We can save what is left behind.

Start making a difference,
before there is nothing.

NO EARTH, NO YOU AND ME, NO TIME!

Heck, my heart talks through another...truly, technology at its best!

May the heart continue to talk and may we all continue to listen!

Very well done! It reminds me of Michael Jackson's song 'Man in the Mirror'. Truer words were never spoken!

I agree totally, what are we doing to our world and when will people realise?
Well done!

Welcome to Passions! Great thought you have left us thinking. I think we all need to remember the Lord! I think things would not be so bad then! Great Job and a great reminder to us all! Thanks!

Very well said! If everyone would do just a little bit, it could make such a difference... from "Gaia" by Olivia Newton- John: "I love my children & I've been your home, But I'll survive this-if I'm alone, I'm a survivor-but you will be gone, Let's start a new world-from this day on" and "For it is you not me, whose fate is in jeopardy"
