how many?

How many hearts need be broken, before that one heart dies?
How many harsh words spoken, before God hears their cries?
How many lifes are ruined, by a parent that just leaves?
How many children must suffer, Before the angels grieve?

How many people must go without, before one sees their needing?
How many crimes committed, to notice a city's bleeding?
How many loved ones perish, in the heat of anger and passion?
When will the empathy come, or is it out of fashion?
