Could you stand there with your heart in a sling or
Would you suffer in silence and not dare say a thing or
Would you stand up and shout or
Take the easy way out
That’s to scream, complain
But not do a thing
It’s not the best way

The folly is silence faced with lies or
Living through a life as if in some sort of paradise
While others suffer and they die
Governments wallow in crime
Killing blacks and whites and
Those not of the same religion ….

A feeling of unknown
Sweeps over a home
Be it two, seven, nine or ten?
Elsewhere gunfire cracks overhead
She looks down, her loved one is dead
She holds her in her arms ….
