THINGS DON’T WORK BACK WAYS
In society day by day,
We watch the morality continue to decay,
Our young people act without love and care,
And we look up on them with much disdain.
But if we look within ourselves with a microscopic plain,
We will realize we are to be blamed,
For deep down we are much the same.
We let our children see us laugh at the sick neighbor next door,
We let them hear us tear down our friends as soon as their backs are turn,
And then we expect that to their mates they won’t do the same.
When we are mad we take back all our love and tell them we don’t care,
Then expect when they are mad with someone out there,
They won’t lash out but instead will smile and walk away.
It is impossible for a mud plastered mirror to shine
And so it is for someone to give love, be nice and kind,
When all they ever know is how to hurt and administer pain.
It’s not practicable, things don’t work back ways,
Our lives must show them the way,
So if you really want to see a change, begin with yourself today.
