    I am sorrow
    I am pain
    happiness I've not yet gained

    misery and waste I have become
    love and joy I know not
    for I have none

    I am homeless
    I am the hunger of every starving child
    and people wonder why it hurts too much to smile

    I am the crime committed daily
    I am the tear in every eye

    I ask the Lord how long will I suffer
    I often ask the question why

    I am withering away in the atmosphere
    I am tired of living in harm and fear

    I am young and I am old
    I am torn families and broken homes

    I am in hopes that the savior is soon to come
    who am I
    I am a hurting nations cry​
