when i was little
we used to rome the block
and know i pass children contained to there own front yards
like prisoners the are locked behind the gate
i remember when i used to think that the adults were safe to run to
but now i find more and more
that they supply our youth with drugs.
i remember when my mother
used to take walks by her self
now she doesn't leave the house.
i remember how parents put there trust in the schools
to keep there kids safe
and so they can learn
but the youth got smarter
and found what it takes to make a bomb
in about 5 mins.
we used to go to churchs to pray for peace
and our country was brought about because a freedom of religion and now we can not say the pledge of the us in our school..our churchs being burnt down
and our country stops and talks about what is wrong
some wonder what they can do to make it better
and i ask of them what brought us to this?
