Could someone stop,and please explain,
why I'm stuck on a world that's gone insane...
Why some people can hate another for the color of their skin,
come on I'm waiting, for someone to begin!
Tell me why, families no longer have the moral strength,
to protect their kids from evil's destructive length?
Why are pedophiles once incarcerated and removed from society,
allowed the freedom to prey again on unsuspecting families?
Someone please explain, why we allow kids to watch questionable shows on the screen,
and then are outraged when a child acts out this violence in a real life scene?
Explain to me how a couple that are drawn together as husband and wife,
turn on one another, vying for children in a malicious custody fight?
Tell me someone, how hospitals can suddenly become too expensive to run every day,
when there is no relief in sight for sickness and surgeries are cut in every way!
Please explain why; those in their golden years are thrust into retirement as worthless trash,
when they protected our peace, so that future generations could rise from War's blood and ash?
There is so many things that I wish could be explained to me but I know it's no simple task,
so I'm still praying Father that we never reach the point when we don't care enough to ask!
