I have lupus, what about you?
Your skin may be light, and mine's dark.
So many differences where do I start?
I've humbled myself because of this illness.
So much in life has bothered my spirits.
Daily I suffer, and I know others suffer too!
So what is the big difference between me and you?
I care about the sick and even the poor,
but your careless thoughts bother me much more!
I'd give my last if I had it, to you and a friend,
but some people wouldn't give if the world was to end.
Hurricanes, earthquakes and tornados bother me,
It bothers me more than most and sometimes deeply.
Anytime there's a tragedy, it affects someone.
For me the incidents linger, for you, life goes on.
So many situations have me scared and shook.
Why did we lose those babies at Sandy Hook?
My heart is hurt, sad, and neglected,
and your biggest concern is the President that we elected.
There is so much going on that most of you know nothing about,
do you even care about the sick ones, the famine and the droughts?
You have great things that are pleasurable and new,
but what about the people are less fortunate than you?
You say it's their fault, because they were given opportunities too,
but you know nothing about their life and what they've been through.
I can't stand when people lie, steal, and are greedy and fake.
I'm the type of person who'd rather give than take.
Most people in life forget where they come from,
I'm glad I'm different from most, I'm only like some.
As easy as you got it, as quick as it can go
So don’t be so quick to judge the people you don’t know.
Try to have some compassion and some kindness in your heart.
For those who have given up on life, teach them a new start.
Your blessings may be beginnings, while misfortunes may cause end.
We need to end violence and stop allowing suicide to win.
This world is a bigger mess than what we started with,
I wake up every day in shock because I live in this.
Lupus always has me so deep in thought,
but I am grateful for all that it has taught.
Let's stop being hateful, and selfish and bland,
if someone is struggling, then lend them a hand.
It's not hard to be kind, or considerate, you see.
I've embraced life values and know what hard times do to me
I’d rather have friends than waste time on enemies.
If you have hate towards me than I’ll let you be.
See, our thoughts and our actions reflect our true being,
Sometimes I don't understand the hatred I continue seeing.
How did we get this way? It wasn't God's plan for us.
What happened to the real value of "In GOD we trust?"
We hurt, rob and kill our own neighbors and brothers,
When we really have no rights to harm one another.
Why can't we wake up and just see the truth?
There's no life without me, but also none without you.
So the real difference you see lies within our hearts.
It’s time to make this world better for all, so where should we start?
