Children of the World

by LadyPearl   Jun 21, 2006

*Written for those kids who are slaves or treated like a slave in their own home.

We are the children of the world
Mother nature's natural pearl
We are neither a slave nor to play
We are kids in every way

The sun is our gracious friend
In the dire night we must defend
From broken bones and cuts on wrists
Dripping tears in an enclosed mist

We, the future of our generation
Our life deserves more than media attention
Everyday our bodies grow more lifeless
Yet we still stand strong, we're not yet helpless

Our heart hopes for better days
Yearning that day is today
Waiting in sharp shackles we are chained
Every night and day, we endure this pain

Our weeping minds grow more dreary
Our weakened bones grow more weary
Has no one heard our pleading call
Is there no one out there to help at all...

*Help them, feed them, fund them, everyday kids and teenagers are suffering. Either from family problems, poverty, rape, bullying, or whatever else, they deserve LOVE and RESPECT!
