As the world turns around and around,
problems are manifested within.
Our children are being kidnapped, molested,
raped and murdered
Our children —as they take their own lives,
And as they take their on lives one by one,
we must wonder who will be left to carry the torch?
Our energies are used on so many worthwhile projects,
when will we do more for our children?
To stop the mass confusion they feel inside.
When will we stop the suffering, that plague our children
night and day?
When will we understand their problems,
while putting their fears and doubts to rest?
Our children must come first as our
continued existence depends on it.
