Killing Fields - Poem/Song



I entered the room in just that way

My child became an adult today

So full of life and so full of dreams

My soul presses for him in the stream


It was yesterday he asked me to help

To tie his shoe to hold his hand as I knelt

It was yesterday he asked me about life

Was he destine to live in strife?


Chorus

The children are the life and the being

The future to carry what we have been

The hope and the spirit of life they wield

The despair as they leave for the killing field

The field of disappointment, the field of missing care, with pain they endure and distance they know, with life ending, ending with a snuff

Oh, my only choice is to love, love, love him as he goes… enough...

Oh God, don’t let him go, go to that place

That place they said needs our defense our base

They tell us it’s true, it’s pure

The need to send them for us to endure


In the the end, they tell us it’s true

The reasons are pure in the virus so new

The prices we see are worthy and a need

To see a new day with a climate a new seed


Chorus

The children are the life and the being

The future to carry what we have been

The hope and the spirit of life they wield

The despair as they leave for the killing field

The field of disappointment, the field of missing care, with pain they endure and distance they know, with life ending with a snuff, when is it enough…?

Oh, my only choice is to love, love, love him as he goes… yeah, yeah, when is it enough...


The world I once knew is no longer here

The confusion I face, the love that was once dear

Has been released for me to embrace

The new love of vice and the wrath is our grace


The anger swells and the violence is unleashed

Where do I find answers that are not seethed

Wait do you hear it, that noise that sound

My heart beats, bathed in stress and is bound


Chorus

The children are the life and the being

The future to carry what we have been

The hope and the spirit of life they wield

The despair as they leave for the killing field

The field of disappointment, the field of missing care, with pain they endure and distance they know, with life ending with a snuff, it is enough, I have had enough…

Oh, my only choice to love, love, love him as he goes… show him a better choice… Love

A choice guided just so… guided by the One above…
