What has become of our world?
What has become of our United States?
We the greatest nation in the world
Bombs exploding, shots ringing out, people losing faith
Everywhere school children, innocence denied, lives forfeited
Terrorist bombs on world streets, in buildings, airports, clubs, houses of worship
Refugees running, families lost, babies crying out sadly neglected
And as Americans, with a great history; where do we fit?
The fireworks on July 4th hide the sounds of abuse and death
Patriotism is put to the test by fear and greed
Love of humankind is replaced by scams and threats
Are we who live in America really blessed and free?
Open your eyes and see …
Open your hearts and believe …
Where are we going?
Which way is the wind blowing?
How do we stop the madness?
As we’re forced to feel the sadness
And watch our world dissolve into a toxic mess
The 4th of July celebration
Proclaims a new intervention
I pray the world will redeem itself
Before there is nothing left …
