Gone - Poem by Barbara Stahly

Gone are the days when the streets
were safe and we left our doors unlocked
We played and we worked and felt safe and secure
but that is not the case any more
We must constantly be aware as there is danger
Oh what a sad state this world is in
with so much trouble and so much sin
Grant that we might someday have
the peace we so desire and that our children
will feel safe and secure once more.
