Close your eyes

Close your eyes and try to see

The poor and starving, the poverty


Close your eyes and think of this

Nothing left but staring into the abyss


Close your eyes but don’t drift away

Think of those with lives in disarray


Close your eyes, why can’t you see

The children starving, hear their plea


Close your eyes and thank the Lord

For all the things in life you can afford


Then close your eyes and drift to sleep

Whilst children die and mothers weep
