    Pray For Our Children

    Pray for our children
    I'll pray for yours
    You pray for mine
    Lest they be trampled
    By an uncaring society

    A society that teaches
    That its really not ok
    To be yourself
    A society that says
    If you want to be popular
    You got to run with the crowd

    Pray for our children
    I'll pray for yours
    You pray for mine
    Lest they become lost
    In the unforgiving realm
    Of drugs, alcohol, and crime

    Pray that they develope fortitude
    With a deep conviction
    Of grace and compassion
    To be able to rise above
    The perniciousness
    That befalls this great nation

    Another gem of spiritual wisdom! I like the way you put this together in rhyme and structure to bring your point home. Great stuff!!

    Amen. I pray for the children every day. Always. 'Children Men & Women'.

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
