Writing by T. Yeargin: "While Men and Women Weep" "Father Who are You?" "Who Am I" and "Human Development"

WHILE MEN AND WOMEN WEEP

As they do now, I’ll fight for their rights

to be free,

While little children go hungry as they do now,

I will try to feed them with the truth so they will

never go hungry.

 

While men go to prison,

In and out as they do now,

I’ll fight to be free and stand on

The word of god!
