Who Cares?

Who cares about the suffering?
Who cares for the pain?
This planet is hurting,
our heroes are falling,
our dreams are burning.
What are we teaching ?
What are we learning?

“Who cares?” they will ask us
“We care,” we will respond
for though we’re born weak,
Love will make us strong.

Who cares if the sun is shining
or rain is falling?
If laughter is foolish
what about the weeping?
Children are hungering.
How will they survive
if we’re myopic guides?

“Who cares?” they will ask us
“We care,” we will respond
for though we’re born weak,
Love will make us strong.

Who cares to have diamonds and gold,
the sheen soon grows dim.
Open up our hearts, Lord,
Lift us from the shadow
of sin. Heal us of
our instinct to judge.
Fill us with your love.

“Who cares?” they will ask us
“We care,” we will respond
for though we’re born weak,
Love will make us strong.

    Sarah, thank you for reminding us that, even in the midst of today’s fragmentation of most things we learned to hold dear, there is still hope-in Love.
    These words are worthy of remembering:

    “Who cares?” they will ask us
    “We care,” we will respond
    for though we’re born weak,
    Love will make us strong.”

    Again, thank you for holding your pen to paper.
