Dare to Care

Listen in close,

If you dare, if you dare,

To the words of your foes.

Can you care? Can you care?

For until our ears open,

And our hearts follow suit,

The world will stay broken

By our need to refute.

So listen in close.

Won’t you dare? Won’t you dare?

Make friends of your foes.

Try to care.

Try to care.

Chosen Facts

We only see what we will see.

“Why care for them when it’s not me?”

Blinded by the life we’ve known,

We won’t accept what’s being shown.

“If what I love us hurting you,

What am I supposed to do?

I’ve never felt the pangs you say

Afflict you each and every day.”

So long as this is how we think,

Our social quality will sink.

Step outside your chosen facts

To listen, empathize, and act.
