The familiar is becoming unfamiliar,
The world is changing,
Not always for the better.
There is much sadness and negativity,
There is need for more empathy.
People are acting out of fear, hatred, misunderstanding,
Where do we want to be heading?
Towards love, empathy and peace,
Or where tragedies and negative actions never cease?
Through education of our next generation,
We have the opportunity to unlearn negative behaviours, thoughts and ideas.
If we can learn, then we can unlearn – to become better,
Better at obtaining peace, love and empathy.
