easy to be hard

How can people be so heartless
How can people be so cruel
Easy to be hard, easy to be cold

How can people have no feelings
How can they ignore their friends
Easy to be proud, easy to say no

Especially people who care about strangers
Who care about evil and social injustice
Do you only care about bleeding crowd
How about a needing friend, I need a friend

How can people be so heartless
You know I’m hung up on you
Easy to be proud, easy to say no

Especially people who care about strangers
Who care about evil and social injustice
Do you only care about bleeding crowd
How about a needing friend, we all need a friend

How can people be so heartless
How can people be so cruel
Easy to be proud, easy to say no
Easy to be cold, easy to say no
Come, on, easy to give in, easy to say no
Easy to be cold, easy to say no
Much too easy to say no

The results of yesterday’s elections made me sad. I’ve had an overall feeling of frustration with the world and the need of people to push their limited world view on others, but this is almost too much to take. I see my friends, hurting because they are denied the basic rights to openly love who they choose, and I hurt for them. This diminishes us all.

edited to add: Well, there’s this, at least – Chapel Hill, NC elects gay mayor. Something to celebrate, anyway.

Reblog this post [with Zemanta]

I write, as openly as possible, about my experiences with life, love, creativity, depression and not-depression. I share opinions. I promote compassion and change. I talk about music. I also write poetry and short stories. I like to share them here.
