Brighten Today By Changing Tomorrow

Today a small hand  grips a gun
Yesterday a small hand shook a rattle

Today a heart blackened by rage
Yesterday a heart thirsted for love

Today a mind lost in confusions abyss
Yesterday a mind hungered for knowledge

Today a soul wounded by constant torment
Yesterday a soul groped for the light of hope

Today a frigid pair of unrelenting eyes
Yesterday a warm pair of innocent eyes

Today, a bullet claims one life
Tomorrow, the chair of justice will take another
Yesterday, social complacency murdered two
