Can anybody tell me, why?

Why is it so

Why should it be

Why is it people

Are not free?


Why is all the world in hate?

I want just to be in love.

Some mad, insane

Disease of mind

Enslaves our heart


Does it have to be like this,

Is there, perhaps,

Another way?

Please look

Inside your heart,

Am I afraid of you,


What you might

Think or say?

Perhaps to you I seem

A little childish in my way


What do I really want to say?

Please don't judge us

By our difference

Please, don't make

Us all compete
