You'll meet many just like me upon life's busy street
With shoulders stooped and heads bowed down and eyes that stare in defeat
Or souls that live within the past where sorrow plays all parts
Where living death is all that's left for men with broken hearts
You have no right to be the judge to criticize and condemn
Just think but for grace of God it would be you instead of him
One careless step a thoughtless deed and then the misery starts
And to those who weep death comes cheap these men with broken hearts
Oh so humble you should be when they come passing by
For it's written that the greatest men never get too big to cry
Some lose faith in love and life when sorrow shoots her darts
And with hope all gone they walk alone these men with broken hearts
Now you've never walked in that man's shoes or saw things through his eyes
Or stood and watched with helpless hands while the heart inside you dies
Some were propers some were kings and some were masters of arts
But in their shame they're all the same these men with broken hearts
Life sometimes can be so cruel that a heart will pray for death
God why must these living dead know pain with every breath
So help your brother along the road no matter where you start
For the God that made you made them too these men with broken hearts

    Mortal man , from the top of the chain on down will take many a wrong turn in his life ! He will do or try something out of the norm to give him a euphoric feeling and in this state he will throw all logic out the door. He will do things he would never dream of doing in front of his loved ones, let alone with or to his loved ones. When sobriety kicks in and he comes to the realization with the cold hard facts and evidence from the proper authorities, his whole world comes crashing down around him. Morality hits him hard in his face, in his head and in his heart. He sees no way out . He realizies if he is ever to see that it does not happen again ,to put an end to this angonising pain he has put his loved ones in... He has put himself in would be to take his own life. He has hit bottom any and all pride he ever had in himself is gone. They say ... We are our biggest critics ! With this said ... He is a man with a broken heart. Who are we to be judge and jury ! It could and does happen every day to one of our loved ones and more horrific and damning to one of us !
