Why should we complain?

If everyone were kinder
If everyone were happy
If the world were not so sinister
Would we still find room to complain
 
If everyone had money
If no one turned to greed
If the world had a chance to breathe
Would we still find room to complain
 
We are blessed that we have lives
That we have food and friends and thrive
And yet despite our goals and drives
We still find room to complain
 
There are people who have little
There are people who have none
There are people who have sickness
And yet they don’t complain
 
We people who have much
Who have everything we need
We people who know luxury
Why should we complain
 
If everybody gave
And helped the world out 
If everybody changed their lives
Who would need to complain?
