If We Could Live Forever

If we could live forever
How much wiser would we be?
Would we have grown accustomed
To the suffering we see?
And would the world be of one mind
United then in love?
Would we be non believers
Or have faith in God above?

Would people still be starving
On that scorched and barren plain?
Would they still be forgotten
Waiting for the season's rain?
Or would we show compassion
To the poor and those in need?
Or learn to look the other way
To fuel our selfish greed?

Would we have learned to live in peace
Or learned to count the cost?
Of all the maimed and wounded
And of those whose lives were lost?
In life we only get one chance
To do the things we should,
So if your life is long or short
Just try to do some good.
