    WHEN WILL IT EVER STOP?
    THE KILLINGS AND THE PAIN
    GRIEF STRICKEN
    MOTHERS, WEEP
    AT THE SIGHT OF
    SHINY SILVER COFFINS
    WITH THE LIFELESS
    CONTENTS OF A LIFE LONG
    STRUGGLE OF HOPE
    FOR THE FUTURE
    THAT WILL NEVER
    BE

    NINE MONTHS PREGNANT
    CESAREAN DELIVERED
    ALMOST DEAD IN LABOR
    SOON AFTER BIRTH
    DAD RAN AWAY
    WITH HIS WINE BOTTLE
    DRUGS & YOUNG
    GIRL

    TWO JOBS WORKING
    STRUGGLING TO PAY THE RENT
    MAMMA STILL MAINTAINED
    A HUMBLE PICTURE OF
    HUMAN SACRIFICE AND SWEAT
    SALVATION ARMY T-DRESSED
    AND YET VERY PROUD
    CLEAN & WELL FED WE
    WERE


    AND HOW SOON &
    WITHOUT ADVANCED NOTICE
    DEATH CAME
    AS MY BODY LAY DRESSED
    IN MY ONLY SUNDAY'S BEST
    OH HOW I WISH I COULD
    CONSOLE MAMMA FROM HER
    GRIEF AND PAIN AT THE SPECTER OF
    SEEING HER YOUNG SON
    DEAD

    IN VAIN I BEGGED THE GOD IN THE HEAVENS
    TO PLEASE ALLOW ME TO
    MAKE IT RIGHT
    'SHE DOESN’T DESERVE
    TO HURT THIS WAY
    ONE MORE CHANCE
    NOT FOR ME
    BUT FOR HER'

    GOD SAID:
    LOOK DOWN &
    FOREVER REPENT
    YOUR ETERNAL PAIN
    IS MUCH WORSE
