I should consider myself very lucky.
I have people who love me at Christmas,
And happiness with me to count down the New Year.
But why then do i I feel so empty,
Almost as if I'm missing something?
Why is the world so critical?
Why do children go hungry,
Or why do women get abused?
Why is world peace only something in our minds?
How do I feel like I'm missing something,
When so many people think I'm so rich?
Why am I not doing something to fill that space?
Why am I not changing the world?
Why aren't you helping me?
