Usually I look forward to a new day
Where love is peace and calm,
Sunshine and smiles
But now there is violence and harm.
My heart is full of pessimism
The day is not a joy to behold,
To view natures beautiful picture
Because it is full of starvation and cold.
Abuse by teenage thugs
Can't walk the streets without fear,
Hoping that you won't be stabbed
Or beaten, by louts full of drugs and beer.
Praying your children will be safe
From bully's in the school yard,
Who prey on the innocent one's
Who have no defence or guard.
Today we are all living in stress city
Thugs with guns, drugs and beer,
What of our grandchildren's future
In this crazy world they will have to live in fear.
