We live in a world
Where rich kids are pampered
While poor kids suffered
It is an unjust world

We live in a world
Where the rich are revered
While the poor are reviled
It is a cruel world

We live in a world
Where there is food wastage
While there is food shortage
It is a strange world

We live in a world
Where increasing wealth
Results in decreasing health
It is an upside down world

We live in a world
Where religion is but a catalyst
To the fanatics
It is a blasphemous world

We live in a world
Where the powerful say yea
And the weak can’t say nay
It is an unfair world

We live in a world
Where battles are common
But peace is hard won
It is an unkind world

It is a cruel world
That is our trial
Look to the future
And hope for the better
For that is all we can do
In a cruel world
