HAVE YOU EVER?

Ever see a sunrise, and wonder why it’s there?
Ever hear an Eagle’s cry, as it glides upon the air?
Never did you contemplate the ocean as it rose?
Climbing higher upon the rocks
To strike an impressive pose?

Ever see a Redwood Tree and marvel at it’s height?
Ever let a man be free, or join him in his fight?
Ever have you heard the screams and not pick up the phone?
Have you ever lit a candle, for the death of an unknown?
Do you sometimes fear death, or simply live in fear?
Have you ever seen a sunrise, and wonder why it’s there?

Ever feel the outrage at a woman raped and ignored?
When she is marked as guilty for the clothes she wore?
Do you see her as a victim, or do you see her as a whore?

If doubted will you stagger, or fight to stand your ground?
In a choir of injustice, will you lend to them your sounds?
Ever see a sunrise and wonder why it’s there?
Will you answer all of this- and show the world you care?
