Society Seeing - Poem by Sandra Osborne

I can not see
Inside my soul,
Or watch the minutes
As we all grow old.

I can not stop
As time flies by
It's not amusing,
To Watch friends die.

I can not listen
For the voice of God
With children crying
While sparing the rod.

And I can not see
Inside your soul
While we watch the tears
As we all grow old.
