Have you ever sat at the side of a creek bed
And saw the little fish swimming with no cares in the world
until the fisherman came
Isn't funny that no matter where we are on the food chain
We are still hunted
How can we as a whole change the future?
We teach our children at young ages how to be grown, how to act the part
But when do they get to be kids?
Is it okay to teach them how to guzzle a beer?
How to smoke a man made cigarette and not accept the consequences?
Will they shoot up too?
They will if we continue to teach them how!
Every time we turn on the television all we see is hate
Didn't we fight to be joined?
So why are we still separated?
Why are we teaching our kids how to hurt somebody
If you don't like what they say
SHOOT THEM
Where is the sense in that?
The vulgar words we are all guilty of using
They now use in their sleep
They now take guns to school
They hurt anybody that looked at them crazy
Different colors:
Blue vs. Red
Red vs. Brown
Black vs. White
Handicapped vs. Us
Us against the world
Where are the boundary lines in our life?
It use to be we could rely on our children to save the future
Now we can't even rely on them to do something VENGEFUL
Do you remember the Civil Rights Movement? Well even though WE overcame that hate
IT NOW LIES IN OUR CHILDREN
They see only the COLOR to which their PARENTS TEACH THEM
When does this insanity end?

Kate-
Even though I don't see you, I know there are plenty of you out there. It all rides on you. We can't let our downfall be from something we could of prevented.
