Where to live
Is there a place where I can go where there's peace all the time?
where there's always joy & laughter, where love's the principle that guides each life?
Is there a place without hypocrisy, where people hate the wrong?
where families stick together & couples fight to protect their love?
Where on earth can I move to where the crime isn't so high,
where the morals of the people are still soaring in the sky?
I'm saddened when I look around, discouraged when I read,
frightened when I think to go & turn on my tv.
Some'll never be wiser because they hate humility,
& will never become better because their pride's too thick for them to see.
I pray that the Lord will help those who see the need for it, I pray He'll comfort & protect us as we wait for a better place to live.
