My Heart Bleeds

In light of the level of violence I am seeing what can I do? I am fortunate, I live in a peaceful country but to witness my brothers and sisters of the world suffer as they do causes me great distress.
I hope this song reaches higher places, that we consider that we too are responsible for creating the peace we wish to see in the world. That hatred is but the seed of murder and the us and them mentality is but primal feuding propagated by evil men in power who only seek power and control. The shedding of innocent blood is totally unacceptable.
My heart goes out to the families, the little children and the suffering. My heart is with you. Please share.

Have you seen it on the tv
did it capture your attention
A world cryin’ for their children
In need of our protection
While puppets hold the stage
their vying for attention
to justify a war
and kill a population

My heart bleeds..

These hands are made for healing
not fighting one another
can’t justify to me
the killing of a brother
Compassion is the action
That’ll save this world from dying
Forgiveness it ain’t so easy
But you know I’ll keep on tryin

My heart bleeds..

There’s a child who roams the street
cries out our for his mother
but little does he know
she now sleeps beneath the rubble
Now tell me this justice
That somehow there’s a reason
The killing of the innocent
Protects your precious freedom

My heart bleeds..
Have you seen it on the tv
did it capture your attention
A world cryin’ for their children
In need of our protection
While puppets hold the stage
their vying for our attention
to justify a war
and kill a population

Sticks and stones will break my bones but name shall never hurt me..
