by Horace Thomas

Someone has to protect them

The future of our youth

Show them the values of life

Guide them with the truth!

Talk to them daily

Penetrate their mind

deep in depth

What will we find?

Shadows of the past

That can’t be washed away

But tomorrow has promise

A brand new day

Teach them about hope

Help them learn to pray

Be a part of society

Pave their way …
