To Whom It May Concern

To Whom It May Concern: I have a bone to pick with you Don’t take this personal But its become a personal issue I feel I can relate Because of all the things I’ve been through For awhile I’ve been noticing that our young people are straying Lost in a world where in schools they can no longer pray in Where teachers make less Than those who are the cause of their addiction Should we blame it on ourselves Or should we blame it on the system Blame it on the parents Or blame the politicians While we’re pointing fingers We’re losing focus and vision Society is falling cause no body is willing to stand up Our young people struggling to see where they’re going While searching for a reason to hold their heads up Our elders are quick to judge from the jury’s seat When guidance is the seed that’s missing from our society Sentence them to life Before they had a chance to live Take everything from them Before they had a chance to give Police can’t find the shooter Because people are afraid to be labeled a witness The difference is the problem And the problem is the difference Can’t you see the problems are starting in the schools By taking away the Bible You’re taking away the rules You’re taking away their foundation on which they’re to build a home We tell them Jesus is the way Yet we ourselves aren’t following him We tell them the devil is the enemy Yet we’re the ones encouraging him Now I’m not criticizing And I don’t mean to judge But I’m sick of being a bystander Enough is enough D.Christian
