In this world of broken dreams with visions all aglow,
  have you ever asked yourself from here where do I go?

Crime and violence are everywhere and sex is used to sell;
  love is now a four letter word and to some there is no hell.

Babies are having babies and Dad's are fading fast.
  Something has got to change somehow or this "society" isn't going to last.

What happened to love your neighbor? Now we lust for the neighbor's wife.
  What happened to honor your parents? Now kids take their parent's life.

What happened to all the heroes? who now leads the way?
  Jesus died for us on Mt.Calvary, but the devil now rules the day.

    I agree with your poem, this world has lost its way. The devil used to rule my life but today I confess that Jesus is my Savior and satan has no hold on me, all his power concerning my life has been broken at the cross of Calvary. God Bless Lary. Leon
