Looking at the changes mankind has made throughout the years

With all its technological advancements and achievements

Makes one wonder why there are so many mothers tears

Shed for their young, unable to find peace in government

This is one of the rights of all as a citizen of life

To be able to recognize a dream and not have it taken away

A mother…too young to be one; a tortured wife…too scared to leave;

An abusive husband…who was viciously shaken by the environment…

Too much violence, not enough love. When will we listen to the wisdom given by the creator above?
