A Bullet's Flight

A gun goes off in the dead of night
Sending death upon its way
Depending on how accurate it is
It can take an innocent life away

A slight pressure on the trigger
And the mayhem can’t be recalled
Its purpose is to kill and destroy
The consequences are never small

A moment when rage controls you
Getting even is all that you think
When nothing else even matters
When hatred brings you to the brink

Just one visit to a solemn cemetery
To lay a loved one to their rest
Because of a desperate situation
They failed and came in second best

Or endure a grieving mother’s cry
As she says goodbye to her child
Because of being an innocent bystander
Caught a bullet that went wild

They say it's human nature to kill
It’s been going on since Cain and Abel
Satan made sure of all of this
He has made us mentally disabled

Taking away guns is not the answer
Killers would use knives or baseball bats
Whatever they can get their hands on
To start a feud or tragically end a spat

The only answer to all of this is God
Allow Him to fix it once and for all, we must
Have Him replace your rage with love
Upon Him, you must put all of your trust
