Be Grateful


EYES WIDE OPEN

Open your eyes baby
Open your eyes.
Your problems are tiny
Compared to the suffering
Outside.
There are people who sleep
And rise
With fear in their mind.
They’re crying to be freed
And to feel
Alive.
Go to sleep baby
Go to sleep.
Be grateful you have a roof
Over your head and
Some food to eat.
There are people
Less fortunate than you
Who lose their jobs,
Go hungry,
Or get raped or robbed,
And end up talking
To themselves
In the streets.
