Station Break - 24 Lines
At just one glance, I knew
I could not watch the news
No FOX or CNN
That's how my day begins.

My soul cries out for rest
a time to stop and bless
the good that's overrun
by fighting and man's gun.

It's not that I don't care
men's hatred, flames that flare
Just need a time to bless
to calm my fears and rest.

The decades I will span
memories of my clan
such love and joy I've known
how fast the years have flown.

Tomorrow, I'll tune in
violence and news spin
and pray for wrong to right
each man no will to fight.

At just one glance I knew
I could not watch the news
no FOX or CNN
That's how my day begins.
