Souls Are Being Twisted

UP late in the heart of darkness                                                                                                     Souls are being twisted against the back drop of the Boston Marathon                                           No one will sleep tonight                                                                                                                  Now we know there is no such thing as collateral damage                                                                                                                                                    When the world is at war                                                                                                               Not at the Marrow building in Oklahoma                                                                                         Not at the twin towers                                                                                                                  Not in the blood soaked streets of Boston                                                                                                                                                                                          Not in the class rooms of New town Conn.                                                                                       And the list goes on  here and abroad                                                                                       Every time one soul falls at the hands of another.                                                                            The darkness grows                                                                                                                      It is time to fill the  world with random acts of kindness                                                             Its' time to do whatever we can                                                                                                                                 And its' time to do it now
