I wish my eyes were a camera,
Capturing moments for all to see.
An instance of pure happiness,
Or of devastation and misery.
Those times of heightened emotion,
Whether they be good or bad.
To either make another feel better,
Or to help someone feel glad.
We all have struggles to overcome,
So sharing them can be an aid,
To those who feel quite alone,
Who feel somewhat afraid.
Then sometimes we just need to cheer them up,
Let them see the good in the world.
Oh, I wish my eyes were a camera,
To show we live on a pearl!
Life is precious, and the land is alive,
We need to work together to survive,
We should help each other to see the light,
To say ‘yes’ instead of ‘I might’.
