    Curbs drowning in the streets
    to much liquor poured too many
    brother's die

    statistically caught resulting
    in ballistic tests and I would
    rest my case but I can't sleep

    when bullets sing twisted harmonies
    that pillage brown houses robbing
    them of tomorrow

    mother's trapped in sorrow and
    sparrows can't fly anymore
    cause the sky rinses itself in blood

    my love for life is questioned
    this thing called reality has me
    wondering if I need to knock on
    heaven's door too soon

    there's got to be room
    there's got to be room.

    As the dear panteth for the waters so my soul panteth hard after thee,
    You alone are my soul's desire and I long to worship you
    You alone are my shield my strength
    To you alone
    May my spirit yield,...

    You alone are my soul's desire
    And I long to worship thee,

    LET'S NOT FORGET,

    All smiles

    Well written,
    ANGEL IN DISGUISE
