We go about our day not knowing
If the breath we take is our last
We’ve become a society of runners
Not learning from mistakes past.
So many conveniences that we have
We used to travel as a family well
Now we are trapped and immobile
If we find we’ve forgotten our cell.
Why does it take a tragic event
To make us stop and wonder why
When it would have been easier
To simply look someone in the eye.
So I say bring on the feelings
Open up and let others understand
Humanity hasn’t been forever lost
Stop, take a breath, touch a hand.
