Because Our Children Our Killing Each Other

#127875 2 years, 7 months ago
Hug your sons and daughters
But don't stop there
Teach your children well
But that's not enough
Demonstrate love and hope
And respect and decency
Live with acceptance and empathy
Display the power and strength
Of resilience and pride
Find the the dignity of living
And the principle of caring
Learn the responsibility of community
And the burden of fellowship

Understand that your efforts will fail
And people will let you down
And, yet, still try again tomorrow
When optimism is a fool's game
Where those who pray for the best
End up bloodied and buried
But you must hoist your flag
On a cold and grey Cleveland morning.

Because our children our killing each other
Because they get lost in the crowd
Because they feel like a number
Because they have no identity

Because life is too hard
Because they have it too easy
Because we are a violent society
Because we shelter our babies

And give them everything
And offer them nothing
Because they are smothered
Because they are all alone

And we are frightened
And we are angry
And we are without answers
And we've stopped believing in anything

Because the news is always bad
And the haters always win
Because hard bullets tear soft flesh
And mothers cry real tears

Because our children are killing each other.
