We are the world
We are the ones who make a better day
For those who hope and pray
That there kids who run and play

We all need somebody that we can lean on
Do you know what it’s like
When you wake up look around and see that your dream’s gone

People are dying and it’s time to lend a hand
I know sometimes it feels like God’s left you
but only together can we make a stand

We are the magic carpet the floor brakes for them to stand on
If you just believe there’s no way we can fall
There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world, must come together as one

We are the world united by a love so strong
We are the guiding light on the dark roads they are moving on
There’s no one who can stop us
Nothing can go wrong

We are the sign post to find the dreams they thought were gone
Someone to help them move the obstacles they stumbled on
We can give them the greatest gift of all

We are the world connected by a common bond
Love! The whole planet should help this cause
Africa, Katrina, Indonesia, and now Haiti needs us
We are the world, and its time to lend a hand

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem after I heard the song We Are The World by the Artists for Haiti, which is where I'm from. When I read this it gives me hope and I hope it will do the same for countless others.
