Great Depression

The sun sets on the dark streets Tears leave eyes as they begin to grieve Life is hard for all But they struggle on, trying not to fall Food is scarce and people starve Words of emotion in walls are carved Houses are taken and the streets become home Bankruptcy evident from too many loans Whole families looking towards the sun Remembering the times when they use to have fun They pray together hoping for the best Saying the Great Depression is just God's test
