what if you woke up in the morning
and the tables where turned
you became me and i you?
what would you do?

what would you feel
if you had to experience what i feel?
would you be able to carry the heavy load
that i toil under for you everyday?

what if you woke up and because of the colour of your skin
you had rocks thrown at you?
what if you were told you could never fit in
what would you do?

what would you do if i were your father and you my child
what would you do if i did to you all you do to me everyday?
would you understand then the need for me to end it all?
would you want to end it all?

what would you do if i were the one who took all you had
all your money, your belongings, everything?
what would you do if you woke up and suddenly
your wife was mine, your kids were mine, everything you owned?

what would you do if you had nothing?
what would you do if all you had were questions?
would you look for answers or would you just
fold your hands and wait for manna?

what would you do if you were me and i was you
and i told you i had to fuck you just to help you?
would you understand then that my life is not one of roses
but of misery and pain and heartaches?

it is a harsh, cold world we live in
remember the joys of today could be a harbinger
of the sorrows of tomorrow
the one you spat at today could well be your saviour tomorrow.
