    A Child's tears

    I stop to listen
    reminising as tears glisten my cheek
    My soul, my heart in agony
    Soul twinging in spite of me
    To the reverbrating sound
    of children's confounded crys

    As the children mourn
    So do I
    As we watch our people's collapse
    As we watch our people's collapse...

    Sons crying alone...fatherless
    Daughters crying alone...motherless
    As we watch our slowly decaying race
    Our children hide in shame their face
    Refusing to accept reality's name

    Waking to empty hearts and empty stomachs
    My children mourn
    Life's sacrifices too much for one just born
    Empty cupboards and empty lives
    Hoplessness and despair my children's nourishment
    As parentless they strive to survive
    Not realizing hope's futility
    They despair feeling only scorn
    Life's sacrifices too much for one just born

    And as they continue their sorrowful journey
    I mourn at what I must see
    My children choking on despair
    Their pain there for all to see
    Their mournful agony laid bare
    The world's pretended ignorance of their despair.

    So alone they fight to live
    Giving all they have when they've nothing to give
    So alone they fight to live
    While the world posessing much to share, refuses to give.

    With nothing to give
    They sacrifice their minds, their hearts
    Their souls given to life
    Their souls their sacrifice

    So as we live our sorrowful lives
    The absence of joy reflecting in our minds
    We look back on our beginnings
    Reminisings, our fight to survive
    As the new era's child

    We must listen 2 our children & soothe their mournful pleas.

    Too many believe that old saying, children are 2 be seen & not heard.

    Listen...

    Nice.
