Please Help Them

…Please Help Them…

Please help them their falling into a ditch of forgetfulness all around me..

Shhh…Listen with your heart..can’t you hear them?

Silently they’re crying..

Out to a generation that seems to careless..

So self absorbed we have become

Focusing only on what we want..

Who will save the ones who can’t save themselves?

What about the ones who are striving but in their attempts seem to fail?

And what about my brotha’s who have paid their dues to society?

Do they not deserve a chance to be happy?

What about my sista’s who are raising children alone?

Working two jobs nine to five and six to close

In a overworked and underpaid society..

And what about the broken teenagers from broken families..

experiencing heartache from their lives changing so drastically

turning to the streets for some form of comfort and stability…

Please help them their falling into a ditch of forgetfulness all around me..

So many are walking around hurting..

Look closely past their phony smiles..

Past the platinum chains..fly clothes..expensive shoes..

Past the drop top mercedes convertible..

When you look into their eyes

Don’t you see their pain and suffering?

Behind it ALL can’t you see that their slowly dying?

So many strive to obtain wealth

Gaining the approval of a twisted world only to lose themselves..

Millionaires commit suicide daily..

It is the rich ones that are the main ones going crazy..

What profits a man to gain the world and lose his soul..

What we need is JESUS not silver and gold…

Because wealth can’t buy you peace of mind

And materialistic things all fade over time..

Please help them their falling into a ditch of forgetfulness all around me..

What ever happen to R-E-S-P-E-C-T?

My young sista’s are chasing false dreams..

Striving to be the pop diva they see on T.V

Wearing the provocative clothes see thru shirts and lower rider jeans..

And if they don’t look like J-lo,Beyonce,Ciara,or Ashanti

Then they’re not pretty?

Don’t they know that looks are only skin deep..

And we wonder why so many of our sista’s lack self-esteem..

What they don’t recognize is that

There are so many insecure faces on the covers of magazines..

There are so many drug addicts on M.T.V

Using substance abuse to numb their pain..

Getting high on acid,marijuana, and cocaine just to maintain..

And these are the role models our young people follow?!

Please help them their falling into a ditch of forgetfulness all around me..

I look around me and I see duplicates..

No one is trying to be unique..No one is trying to be different..

Every one is trying to be down..

Every one is trying to fit in..

With the Thizz movement…

The her movement.

But what about HIS movement??

Whatever happen to originality?

Whatever happen to standing up for what you believed?

Does any one else have a voice besides me?

If you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything..

A prime example….our broken community.

Please help them their falling into a ditch of forgetfulness all around me…

Who are they??

 Our world today…
