    Walking thru the cemetary
    sounds of your voices crying
    from beneath the earth
    crying out for a savior
    to save
    the remnant
    left behind.

    "Don't let this happen to another child".
    "Don't let the song die".

    Tears in my eyes
    viewing the pictures of those missing
    stolen
    by predators
    that has no soul.

    As the death angel
    looms overhead
    to silence another voice
    I must
    follow
    somehow stop him from
    taking another one.

    A baby crying in the night
    as a hulking monster, the father, yells and screams
    for the baby to stop
    picks up the child
    as the death angel greedily
    awaits
    but I must intercede
    pleading with the death angel
    take me
    spare the child.

    Death angel looks and smile
    a soul is a soul
    and a life is a life.

    The father's anger has subsided
    puts the child down
    as the death angel
    proclaims
    the deal is done.

    Greater love hath no man than this
    that a man would lay down his life
    for a friend
    sacrifice made
    in order for the song to continue.

    Will others stand up and stop the madness?
    Will others stop the genocide
    that threatens to silence
    the voices of our progeny forever?

    Will you stand?

    For if the voices are silenced
    then we ourselves have died.

    No thank you for allowing me to scribe with one who possess a dymanic and lyrical soul and might I say one who has a smile that is more brilliant than any star in the sky....I thank you Nia..I really do.
