Best Poem of Namie Elisha

What Children Know (Understand)

Children know laughter
They know tears
Children know peace
They know chaos
Children know acceptance
They know rejection
Children know joy
They know pain
Children know abundance
They know lack
Children know health
They know illness
Children know fulfillment
They know emptiness
Children know hope
They know dismay
Children know love
They know hatred
What they don’t know is WHY!

Read the full of What Children Know (Understand)


There is a question everyone is asking
How much time do we have?
To reach out and make things right?
Children are born and children die
The level of instability so high
The fathers are dead
The mothers are hopeless
Still into this desolate land, they must go
To find a beautiful land beyond.
