Could people listen to the calls of the world?
Can they hear the homeless children's cries?
Listen to the world as the pollution blankets the sky.
Turn off your phones and high-tech gear!
Can't you hear? Look at what you have,
compared to the poor.
Listen to our brothers, our sisters,
Listen to what is happening,
the street gangs and fires of war,
May we cover the sky with our hatred?
We should cover it with peace. Listen.
