    After a long deepen wait
    watching our children continue to escape
    into a system beyond there fate
    captivated yet never too late
    inside this poverty struggle
    capside and mentally muzzle
    by the justice un-lover
    how she weep, o'yes thy mother

    As da street become there home
    broken sad wit silent moan
    lost knowledge to be wisdomize
    jailed in da cell continue to rise
    as morals of family bond has strayed
    time to reclaim da life we've gave
    callin all da chillins home
    correcting to right and ending wrong
    deep in da depth of my mind
    how we lost our children with time

    salty tearz now river fall
    watching children disobey on call
    searching for love / hope and grace
    seeking warmth in da human race
    time we get back to history embrace
    and get our children from da dismay
    stop turning our heads
    let them know elders not dead
    be not a shame of what we done
    come home my daughters and sons

    Calling my children home
    through da outreach of these arms
    save a souls a life at hand
    do whatever our leadership can
    callin callin these babies home
    from da cold da system mold
    to feed wisdom , knowledge to be wise
    and become men women to rise
    O' how i watch beyond compare
    calling our children home i now bare
    callin callin callin callin callin .........

    Children need to know
    they can come back into the fold
    But instead some stray and go their own way
    Morals gone, pride erased, a broken tattered mold
    Our youth can come back, I have to believe this
    Do they need a beacon that shines brighter still,
    to overshadow the deadly fast track of the streets?
    If we have to scream to get them back, we will...

    Keep calling them Rich, keep calling them. Powerful scribe.

    So often watz they just become confused in the street system of worldly
    evil but we can reach them , save them and uplift them beyond turning our heads
    we have to talk / preach and speak daily by all means ....call with me so we be heard
    Thank u sista for the feedback as this lay heavy on my mind.

    Thank u sista TreasureEyez i'm trying as i open my arms to the lost / confused and
    lack of to show them hope is alive beyond the streets of destruction
