Timeline Thoughts

Do we know their struggle
The reason they fight
Or do we just spend our time
Trying to prove that we're right

If we believe that our origins are the same
Maybe it is time to stop laying blame
And look for the bit of the myself
In the eyes of someone else

While the Bible tells me not to weary
In doing good I must admit
That listening has almost made me forget
That your pain is what drives your fury

I've gotten tired
And, so it seems, have you
But while some have the privilege to step away
Not all of us do
