Just a Declaration

It's a declaration of lamentation

over a world that's lost its way

when the rich and the poor are universes apart

you know humanity has been defeated

when the life of a child

is nothing compared to cash piled high

you know the human race has failed

what can we do to right this wrong, before it's much too late

it can only start with a whole new declaration

pieced together from the fragments of love

still left within our souls.
