The Fight to Own Someone

Just when fighting over a will seemed to be the worst.,
They start fighting over Power of Attorney
To one with policies, near death, and no one to be beneficiary.
They do not care for this one so neglected by family,
That she lives in a nursery facility.
They have never visited.
They do not even visit while fighting over her.
They all talk to her like she’s a dog,
Treat her like she’s invisible,
And yet fight over her like property.
What does one do in seeing the war?
One prays and prays in confidence
That God knows all, sees all,
And knows everyone’s intentions.
God will protect His child.
God, I pray Your will upon her life and her death.
In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

We Struggle In A World

We struggle in a world where children are dying to survive,
And there’s nothing we can do to keep them alive.
We sell their bodies and dope their brains.
We give them homes that drive them insane.
We clean out the alleys to service the rich,
To later leave bodies lying in a ditch.
We cancel the love to give the greed,
Caring not who hurts or if children bleed.
It’s sick. It’s insane. It’s way out of hand.
It’s something disgusting. I don’t understand.
Why are we here, if we’re only abusing?
Do you seriously believe this life is amusing?
I just can’t get it. I guess I never will.
Excuse me for living, I guess I tend to feel.
