A Better Way

Someone lied today.
Someone killed
and someone died.
Someone broke a heart
and someone cried.
Somewhere, someone
cheated and left his wife;
While someone made drugs an idol
and gave up on life.
yes, and someone performed
forty-six abortions today;
as many shook their heads
and said it was okay.
Someone starved to death on the street
and someone else gave into sin and deceit.

A newborn babe was born
and on his mother's face,
a smile was worn.
A little light began to shine;
so warm and so bright...
And someone knelt down to pray;
Someone gave the Lord their
life today.
Someone saw that there is a Better Way!
