I Opened my Eyes

I have been hurt and made to feel bad
I have been shocked and made to feel sad
I have been forced to change my life
I have felt so much upset and strife
I have seen some truths and I have turned away
I didn’t acknowledge all suffering in one day
I didn’t change all my ways overnight
I didn’t suddenly know, all that was right
It takes a lifetime to learn and it hurts at the start
But it didn’t take long to look into my heart
To realize the cruelty and make my stand
If you want to learn…here is my hand
I will help you
Stop the cruelty
