What Happened ?

Abused freedom.

What has this country become ?

Looking around.

Abandon & filth is all that I found.

What Happened ?

From colorful, joyful, musical, Hopeful,

To dirty, scary, hungry, Lonely.

What Happened ?

From "Children at play,"

To "Chilren hide away !!!"

What Happened ?

This was my second home.

It used to be safe to just rome.

What Happened ?

This change was so sudden.

Didn't give me time to toughen.

What Happened ?
