Your Reason Why! You Live or Die

We reach for love to let us live while we cope
a shame when it collides with pride and hope.
For dark clouds will change your cheer to fear
only the fool would pretend the coast is clear.

The strong will seek while disregarding the weak
the meek hides and peeks, their unwilling to speak
We each must face our darkest side and then decide
just how will you live and why! or die unwilling to try

These truths must be revealed or destiny will be concealed
feeding needs lacking facts, that’s how freedom is attacked
Look out on any city landscape, oh screaming cries of hate
while the homeless gather to wait, a despicable ending fate

Home window bars clinch and hold, marauders! getting bold
as the drug addicts circle back, to earn the next hit of crack
Every parent’s nightmare, gun fire in the school yarn now clear
so how do you fight such despair! when it seems, nobody cares

I'm a father, friend, and a family man, I believe in right and wrong, I understand the value of standing on your own. I have an iron will with a poet's heart, a belief in God is where it starts.
