 Consequences, Just Ask Yourself
Does a mother ask herself what's the consequences,
when she takes a pillow and places it over her baby's face
taking the child's breath while the child sleeps.
Then in the face of the public's eye,
she falsely weeps.

Then ask yourself
Just ask yourself

Does a kid with high promise in life ask themselves
what's the consequences of walking into a store with a friend
and holding it up at gunpoint,
only taking some cigarettes and a few figures
and in the end the friend squeezes the trigger.

Then ask yourself
Just ask yourself

Does a serial murderer rapist ask themselves
what's the consequences of graduating to their first kill,
while putting their filthy hands on the innocent,
taking what of theirs that is intimate.
While breaking their victims mentally and physically
thinking its all legitimate.

Then ask yourself
Just ask yourself

Does one ask themselves what's the consequences of fighting back
while being held with others hostage while the tension is heavy.
When the fact is, he or she could be put in the media as a hero saving everyone
or in the media as a fool getting everyone killed
and now they're all in the obituaries.

Then ask yourself
just ask yourself

Do any of us ask ourselves what's the consequences
of any action before reacting.
Some of us have the mind frame to think before reacting,
when others just act before thinking.
Then the rest could care less about the consequences of their actions
if they can get away with the cause of their actions.
Now imagine this world if it was all actions without any consequences.

Then ask yourself
Just ask yourself
