My Son

My son,  my son
I want to see my son 
Please God , where is my son 

That's all I heard 
As the man ran past 

Seems there was a shooting 
And he can't find his son 

He heard there was a shooting 
On his car radio, that's all he knew
His son was all but a child of fifteen

Someone reaches out to stop him
As he drops  to his knees  to pray
My God, My God please show me 
my son. 

I will do anything to see my son 
Next thing he knew they took him 
down stairs to see his son 
To the blood soaked sheets 

God let him see his son that day 
His son was an innocent bystander 
Of the games people play on the world stage!

    A very powerful write on todays games, Debbie. So many bystanders are swept up by thoughtlessness and self-centerd anger. I enjoyed reading this wonderful write. ~ Caryl

    Contemporary, and hard-hitting. It seems we hear about tragedies like this every day. It's so sad... God bless, Keith
