54. True Colors

by Eve Hall - Atlanta, Georgia

Our lives have changed because of world disasters
Some changes for the good, some for the bad
Why does it take a tragedy for ones to
Come together in unity and peace?

Some make changes for a day, a week, a month
Then they go back to their true colors
Of being unkind, uncaring, unloving

What is wrong with this picture -
Are we part of the problem or the solution?

Let's look into our hearts and souls
Give ourselves a self-examination
Do it while there is still time
Do it NOW
