The beauteous innocence of a life unspoiled;
a loving family shelter with peace unroiled.
Smiling laughter fills each luminous face.
Protected splendor yields personal grace.
The shattered wound of childhood lost.
Broken homes carry enormous cost.
The streaming sadness of flowing tears,
leaves scattered lives, forgotten years.
A heart that nurtures a growing seed,
can save a life that's become a weed.
Caring words build a beautiful life,
hurtful ones lead to generations of strife
Use your power to shield and heal.
Construct a haven in the commonweal.
Break the endless chain of fear.
Salve the wounds; dry the tears.
