I wish I’d dared to really care

When I was a kid
And my classmate was being bullied
I just sat and watched
I wish I’d dared to really care.

When I was in school
And a girl was being molested
I just turned around and looked away
I wish I’d dared to really care.

When I was walking down the street
And I saw someone’s purse being stolen
I pretended not to see
I wish I’d dared to really care. 

When somewhere in the night a child cried
A woman wept, someone died
I pretended to sleep
I wish I’d dared to really care.

May be if I had dared to care a little
May be if I was not to brittle
On one more face there would be a smile
Someone’s life would  have been less of a trial.

May be we should all dare to care

Let’s all take a pledge
To care for every face
To care for every race
