WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GOOD OLD DAYS

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GOOD OLD DAYS WHEN…

The Young Respected the Elderly,

Fathers Did Not Abandon Their Families and Children,

Helping your Neighbor was a Good Thing and Not a Bother,

People got Married to Stay,

I ASK, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GOOD OLD DAYS WHEN…

Grandparents Advised their Grandchildren,

Aunties and Uncles Acted as Role Models for their Nephews and Nieces,

Children took Care of their Aging Parents,

Parents Corrected their Children when they Did Something Wrong,

I ASK, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GOOD OLD DAYS WHEN…

The Living were More Important than the Dead,

The Healthy Took Care of the Sick,

Love was Pure and not Fake,

Preachers led the way to Glory not Doom,

I ASK, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GOOD OLD DAYS WHEN…

Kindness was an Embraced Virtue and not Shunned Upon,

Home was a place of Peace and not a Battle Field,

Succeeding as a Community was the Goal rather than Progressing as An Individual,

The Leaders Actually Offered Guidance and Direction to Their Followers,

I ASK, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GOOD OLD DAYS WHEN…

We Loved The People Who Made Our World Beautiful And Not The People Who Were Most Beautiful.
