Explain It, To Me

I just don’t understand
I just can’t see
is there anyone who can explain it to me

another day
more bad news
my mind tries to turn away

but my heart refuse(s)
to ignore
what is in front of me

my heart cries out for the innocent
as it screams for peace
it prays for love and decency

they say be the change
you want to see
and I try Dear God

as I fall to my knees
tell me what to do
tell me who to be

make me as strong as I need to be
make me the love you want others to see
but I fail

and I fall
I am not enough
I am but one, this world needs more love

my mind races
my tears fall
can anyone explain it

any of it, at all?
