How much does life cost,
If people treat themselves,
As well as others,
In a friendly, loving manner?

How much does life cost,
If other people have no regard,
For their own lives,
And the lives of innocent others?

How much does life cost,
If people have the desire to,
Completely give up; discard their lives,
And cause others pain?

How much does life cost,
And what are you supposed to do,
When you wake up to see your imagination's nightmare,
Is the horrific daytime reality?

How much does life cost,
When it is so precious you can’t price it,
Yet to some, so insignificant,
It could be thrown away?

How much does life cost?
