There is within every soul
This place of understanding we can know,
A way for us to be able to see
The burdens we carry on this road to be free.
If we could see what's behind other's fate
And stand for a moment in their shoes,
We could find compassion
for what they do
And see another way to view.
There are so many different ways we live,
So many different ways we dream,
That lead us to learn what we think we need
That will carry us to our destiny.
Understand that here on earth
We all have egos that want to be in control,
To be recognized and applauded and known So many want just to be loved so.
But beneath the outer shell we see
There is this inner core,
There is a heart that needs
to be Recognized for who it is
and what it believes.
Understand we all have needs
Most of the time they can't be seen,
It takes a lot of time it seems
To get to live out our life's true dreams.
And so when we see the bigger picture
We can see how we have to live together here, And how it helps see others and care
To look into their hearts and their hidden fears.
So take some time in your busy day
To show some kindness today,
If you try you can find a way
And what a difference that might make.
You'll find a connection to other's lives
That helps us to understand their plights,
With a little compassion for the human race We can find a place more love in our life.
