           REDEFINING WORLD


                   TASTE THEIR TEARS



             Taste their tears
             Listen…
             Hear their fears
             Their hearts are beating too…


             Do you see the bony arms
             Waiting for a loving embrace?


             Do you see the unspoken sorrow
             Blatant on their faces?



             Just place yourself in their
             shoes
             It's not hard to do.


             Raise your voice
             To obliterate hatred


             Raise your hands                         Look for laughter
             To help a few                            Search for joy


             Ask yourself if it was worthwhile        Splash it around
             The soul tells no lies                   It'll wipe off woes


                                                      Hear their fears
                                                      Taste their tears


                                                      Moisten your eyes
                                                      For someone else.
