Keep Thinking


I wake up every morning
And look out of the window
Before me, I see trees so green
Then I think of other people
Who've been blind from birth
This beauty God gave me they've never seen

Every single morning
I go into the bathroom
I brush my teeth and then I use the loo
Then I think of other people
Who get up every morning
Simple things like these they cannot do.

When I go for breakfast
I open up the cupboards
Because you see I have the choice of many
Then I think of other people
Who go to have their breakfast
But usually inside theirs, they haven't any

When it's time to go to work
I get inside my car
Turn key then I'm off it's pretty cool
Then I think of other people
Who have no means of transport
And have to walk everywhere as a rule

At lunch, I have my sandwiches
Or visit a local bar
Eating fish and chips or some meat
Then I think of other people
Those who have no money
Begging every day for food they eat

When I'm feeling thirsty
I go to water fountain
It's germ-free, cold, and pretty swell
Then I think of other people
Who have no such clean water
Their water comes from hole in dirty well

Each night I have a shower
The water's nice and hot
Time spent there in minutes usually ten
Then I think of other people
Who have no such hot water
They wash in river every now and then

I walk into Town
Police are on the beat
But I can come and go because I'm free
Then I think of other people
Many who are bullied
Beaten with a stick or belt you see

How many are like me?
Who do these many things
Things we take for granted every day
Spare thoughts for other people
Instead of just yourself
Then hopefully, good will come their way

I pray that world leaders
Will open up their hearts
And send humanitarian aid for all
Every week is Christian week
Please don't turn the other cheek
Pick up the phone give Christian aid a call
