Why is it so easy to say too much
Why must we always have the last word
Why can't we just love unconditionally
Loving you

Why does one hurt each other on purpose
Is it our self-centered, insecure twin
If only maturity, patience and compassion
Came all came at once, in an instance like this
We can only try

Our character suffers
Because we can only judge each other
Though we can never be free
Because it defines us

Instead, trust and respect
Without it, where can we be
Still looking and wandering for each other
Hoping to see that inner glimpse of our true self
Waiting to be seen
Oh, if we could all live life so

"At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by "I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless, and you took me in." Hungry not only for bread - but hungry for love. Naked not only for clothing - but naked of human dignity and respect. Homeless not only for want of a home of bricks - but homeless because of rejection."
