Exactly when did we begin to forget To appreciate life in all it's glory and magnificence? How can we estimate freedom or it's price, how are we to teach our children anything... In the face of such distortion. We westerners expect to be treasured and esteemed- then cry a river when someone is mean And, didn't you know, about the new craze?! Designer pills pushed at us- to boost self esteem. Oh baby cry to mom and dad- You have no clue about what horrors there really are Too bad mom and dad aren't here They would have comforted you, protect and succumb to your every wish. People need to be shown what fear really is Worst being your family gone so do forget- so ashamed we should be When so many others' live in misery. Consider yourself lucky, upon a land so great because some children, at their parents hand are sold into slavery. Repent and quit your foolish ways- listen to the story of fear under ruthless regiments and endless torment- Take nothing for granted- you never know when will be your last day. NOT FINISHED
