Unto this world a new child is born…

Unto this world a new child is born…

Into a culture stricken with madness

That is strained by infinite sadness

The baby cries out loud when it is torn

From its mother’s womb of blackness

 

Out of its protection and comfort

The child shrieks at the sudden rejection

Life-line severed, a vital connection

Removed, the child suffers in discomfort

Incessant cries appeased through affection

 

Nurtured by two devoted parents

Naively infecting an open mind

With handed down beliefs over time

Practiced sophisticated appearance

All innocence stripped, a vile crime

 

Affected by inherent fate

All purity is lost with childhood

Preparing the stage for manhood

Opening only the designated gates

Failing to see or honor brotherhood

 

Believing all things are possible

Stepping on and over others

Conserving an evil culture

Through faith nothing is impossible

Desperate for acceptance he suffers

 

Distraught with grief he makes a confession

That defies the righteous path selected

Seeking his truth while preserving respect

Finds value in human connections

Coveting real purpose with acceptance
