What Price for a Life
What price should be paid for the loss of a life?
Is it true some people have no soul?
Can a person court evil and embrace it so much
They have no chance to be whole
Can your heart turn so cold even God can’t get through?
Is it possible to reach that stage in life?
If that is the case then they should be locked up
For they really don’t know day from night
Three lives were cut down counting one in the womb
And the community is outraged to the core
And the criminals are coddled by the courts of this land
We should shout out in grief, no more
Yes it is a fact monsters walk in our midst
And they have no conscience or care
They deserve the same mercy that they show to their victims
For the scales of justice to be fair
For the families of these victims this is our prayer
May God’s love and his grace shower you
May you draw from his strength, may you walk by his side
Counsel him, for he will pull you through
