    babies with no one to cushion their fall
    learning to walk before they even crawl

    a mother no longer able to fight back the tears
    homeless and helpless as she faces her fears

    a young woman thought her beau would be true
    her body now ravaged with disease thru and thru

    a grandmother wonders if she was allowed to stay
    only to raise the child ... her child threw away

    parents struggling to make ends meet
    no longer sure what their children will eat

    women with no respect for self or each other
    all caught up in the thought of having a brother

    children with no one to lead the way
    falling prey to snares that their parents laid

    everyone thinking only of self
    no thot of the pain they cause someone else

    another woman beat by the hands of her lover
    choosing to stay keeping the bruises all covered

    the elderly mistreated and being neglected
    by those they thought would love and respect them

    tempted to ask, "Lord please tell me why?"
    saying instead, "but for the grace of God go i."

    :heart:
