Trading in Family values

Trading in Family values

something 
Can be said

for

Leaving a cellphone
to be charged
On a Vegas
casino floor

child college fund
Traded
For a handful of chips

Hypodermic needle
Discarded with family 
Values
In a public bathroom 
Stall

The pathway 
To hell
Was paved with
Good intent
Leaving the desire

For more to be
The addiction
For self destruction

Hi Greg...It is sad how our decisions can change the course of our life in the blink of an eye....What we know in our heart is right is discarded in a moment of misjudgment.  You brought this fact to light.  Worrisome...Makes me scared for my children.  xo

A VERY well written social commentary on the 
current decline of our society, and others. As I
said brother, your style is evolving at one of the
most rapid paces i've ever seen in a writer.

bravo!
