Everything Bad
Regina Puckett

Lovely mud on his hands and face
Feeling secure in this dirty place
These childish games teaching life lessons
Fun and laughter neatly wrapped in blessings
He’ll remember these times when he gets older
Something to hold onto when hate becomes bolder
It will try to rip his roots out from under his feet
That’s where childhood memories and love will meet
They’ll hold him together in the most trying moments
Once again hearing those fun-filled nursery rhymes
And he’ll know that while this moment might be sad
That life isn’t always filled with crime, anger and everything bad
