Is It Any Wonder

Is It Any Wonder

 

Is it any wonder

 

that the world is filled with pain

 

when man sets aside its beauty,

 

for his own material gain?

 

 

Is it any wonder

 

that lovers' hearts grow dim,

 

when they do not hold in honor,

 

the love that's found within?

 

 

Is it any wonder

 

that the homeless often fail,

 

when they're forced out of house and home

 

to seek another trail?

 

 

Is it any wonder

 

that nature falls to ruin and rubble,

 

because we drain it thoughtlessly,

 

allowing it to crumble?

 

 

Is it any wonder

 

that children go astray,

 

because we did not take the time,

 

to show them the proper way?

 

 

Is it any wonder

 

that evil's strong and bold,

 

when we can't see any goodness,

 

and we let our hearts grow cold?

 

 

Is it any wonder

 

Racism thrives, my friend,

 

When we cannot see the person,

 

Just the color of his skin?

 

 

Is it any wonder

 

that friendships die and fade,

 

when we forget the reasons,

 

why they first were made?

 

 

Is it any wonder

 

our world has been polluted,

 

when we allow our industries,

 

to strip it and permute it?

 

 

Is it any wonder

 

there's so much grief and sorrow,

 

that we don't even seem to care,

 

what will take place tomorrow?

 

 

Is it any wonder

 

we see no value in our brothers,

 

and we hold ourselves too far above,

 

the many needs of others?

 

 

Is it any wonder

 

our world is like it is,

 

when all we do is grumble,

 

and no action do we give?

 

 

Is it any wonder

 

we wait in fear of Judgment Day,

 

when we do the things we do,

 

then forget the way to pray?

 

 

 

There is a special place in life,

 

that needs my humble skill,

 

a certain job I'm meant to do,

 

which no one else can fulfill.

 

 

The time will be demanding,

 

and the pay is not too good

 

and yet I wouldn't change it

 

for a moment even if I could

 

 

There is a special place in life,

 

a goal I must attain,

 

a dream that I must follow,

 

because I won't be back again.

 

 

There is a mark that I must leave,

 

however small it seems to be,

 

a legacy of love for those

 

who follow after me

 

 

There is a special place in life,

 

that only I may share,

 

a little path that bears my name,

 

awaiting me somewhere.

 

 

There is a hand that I must hold,

 

a word that I must say,

 

a smile that I must give

 

for there are tears to blow away.

 

 

There is a special place in life

 

that I was meant to fill

 

a sunny spot where flowers grow,

 

upon a windy hill.

 

 

There's always a tomorrow and the

 

best is yet to be,

 

and somewhere in this world,

 

I know there is a place for me.
