It Won'T Be Long - Poem by Patricia Kelley

I know it won't be long, and another mother loses custody of her child because of drugs.

I know it won't be long, and another child is born with brain defect because of the mother doing drugs, while pregnant.

I know it won't be long, before another child's thrown into the foster system because of neglectful parents.

I know it won't be long, and another child will be shot by another drive by shooting.

I know it won't be long, and a friend will run to the aid of a shattered heart, where a love turned bad.

I know it won't be long, before another man takes his life because of an unfaithful wife.

I know it won't be long, and another lost soul is taken.

I know it won't be long, before another writer takes credit for another one's work.

I know it won't be long, before another sister and brother, steals their other sibling's inheritance, because of arrogance.

I know it won't be long, before we all see the truth.
God sees the truth
