It Could Happen To You

It could happen to you

Be ridiculed

know abuse

battle with low self esteem

It could happen to you

Get laid off

wreck your car

watch your dad’s mind slip away

It could happen to you

Find a lump

bury a child

see your home burn to the ground

It could happen to you

Become an addict

get arrested

sleep at night by a dumpster

It could happen to you

Survive a disaster

stay in a shelter

not know just how to go on

It could happen to you

Live in fear

Have no hope

Hearing bombs fall every night

It could happen to you

Tune them out

walk away

surely someone else will step in

It could happen to you

Be indifferent

blame the victim

‘Cause you know it’ll never happen to you.
