You Will Feel

be mindful
human rights are human ways
that lead down

be careful
the words above always remain
wear no crown

trap the sin
destroy the lie of conceit
look within

don't consume all that you see
you will feel
wrong like fire

Kids go down
The slide…they head toward the swings

Free time ends
Their parents want to go home
Frowns exchange

Sometimes a mistake
Sounds better than when played right

Have existed in yellow 

Peaked with gold

Now living in blue

Splendored by red

No longer covered in black
