We accept the love
We think we deserve
When we allow the abuse
From those we observe
The quality of our relationships
Contingent upon what we instill
What values do we practice?
What values do we fulfill?
Problems between generations
Do not just go away
Many are passed off to the next
So few are resolved when in play
The people who do not notice
Suffer long down the road as it may
When disheartened by their activities
As the memories of a wasted life slips away
When time becomes the currency
On what and where is the value spent?
Frivolity of an ego?
Why in our last days that we lament
