What is the fate of our children?
Their future has never been so grim.
Where there was silence, one hears ugly chants.
Where there was peace, one feels unrest.
Where one saw beauty, he sees graffiti.
Streets are sealed off by the police
who try to protect the innocent
Cities become dangerous like war zones
Unheard of crimes make the news
Some places experience this turmoil for days
We ask for law and order
We pray for national peace
We worry about our country, cities and homes,
But most of all,
We worry about our children.
