Hell on Earth

Blood runs cold
In the warm summer ground
As newborn angels rise
And float away
In the gentle Texas breeze

Death came to soon
An uninvited guest
Cruelly abducting our children
Stifling their dreams of the future

Now mothers and fathers
Will hold onto memories of the past

And our nation will ask why
While politicians play their chess game
In the media

EVIL cast its shadow
Uprooting peace
And destroying innocence
Leaving death, destruction and mourning
In its wake

And yet...
We will still cling to hope

Hope...

For the future
For our children
For our country

Hope... that the decency of mankind can survive with peace and love toward one another.

And try to take comfort...

Knowing God will one day save us
From this Hell on Earth
