Lust For Power Hardens Hearts

Years of national harmony

I'm afraid are drifting away

Days when we were united

Appears to be of another day.

Leaders of our great country

Are arguing and seldom agree

Hopefully something will happen

Protecting our land of the free.

Lust for power hardens hearts

Like cancer takes away lives

Our freedoms are swiftly slipping away

Like quick deep wounds from sharp knives.

Many people around the world

Would give anything to live in our great land

But today some of them are beginning to wonder

Are our freedoms vanishing like our beach sand.

We need to get our act together

Or some evil force might think we're growing weak

And attempt to take away our country

Words_ it hurts my heart to speak.
