I’m sorry I just drove by

I’m sorry that I just drove by
In my elegant suit and tie
Seeing you but ignoring the fact
That actually I could act

When I looked into your eyes
I couldn’t hold the years of lies
Must be the age of my daughter
Your message I will teach her

My main concerns in life
Beyond the means to survive
I can’t do that anymore
If I have to accept this for

Your suffering did change my view
It’s not that I never knew
But now I do what matters
For me, you, and others
