What is happening to our world today?
It just isn’t the same
We used to be creative for our future
Now we’re destroying what we’ve created
And giving someone else the blame
This Corona Virus that has gotten way out of control
We look at life in bits in pieces
When we should also look at it as a whole
What has happened to our humanity, our faith in the Lord
or shooting hoops or playing ball at the park
Now we have street petitioners, more unemployment,
more homelessness as well as curfews,
where you have to be inside after dark
Our courthouses and government building all have been boarded up
and closed throughout our towns
Because of the thought getting justice, just burn it or tear it down
It doesn’t matter what the color of your skin is
We are all human beings, woman and man
Try to remember we are going to make mistakes
But we should try to learn from those mistakes, and do the best we can
I know we can be and are better than this
we’re only hurting ourselves and making things worse
by acting and not thinking things through and through
there might people out there that are smarter, faster, wealthier
but you should know, no one is better than you
