Marvin Gaye’s song, “What’s going on?”
Perhaps a suggestion
What’s happening to an untamed world?
A word full of hate
Change can ‘t penetrate
A rising voice won’t stand to illustrate
Cries into moans
Tomorrow on daily sorrow
The world’s hearts flourishing on being shadow
Fist up ready for every fight
Guns adding to the might
What’s going on?
A world that was once on love and respect
It has come to reject
A world nobody knows
But is there understanding in the asking?
It’s the search for change in participate
But it becomes greater into getting enough
Some see it as a bluff
We can’t let go
We must follow through
What can we all do?
Let’s look to pursue
That’s what is going on
