Lost Children

Where have they gone?
Wide eyed innocent faces
Suddenly replaced with hostile gazes,
Playing tricks and putting on--
These so called sweet lads
With foul mouth and tongue:
Fresh faced, agile and young
Struggle to keep up with changing fads
Speak angry words for no apparent reason
Who are these wannabe thugs
Hiding behind facades unplugged
Giving way to this open season...
And who forgot to tell
These young ears are not safe
The targets of fire and strafe,
Of this image we can not dispel?
Common sense is a thing of old,
Lost to these young minds
Precious lives wasted, but reminds
Of bodies lying cold.

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
