A child`s Cry

Could my words
be rooted in your hearts serene,
And wish to host my woes and fears
And sweep off those
nightmares
And to bring me
some lovely dreams.
Ah! late in the night,
when the whole world gets quiet,
and the distant stars
Take on the darkness
with meek and feeble light.
I pray:
O lord of the heaven and earth,
Why have I been so fretted since birth.
Could I be secured
From the life obscure?
I am a flower distant to be bloomed
I am a child, save me from doom.

    hear the children crying. The voice of the children crying have been taken for granted but poets will never shut their mouth for them. Thank you for writing this poem and keep on writing

    Dear Gulsher, your words are totally true. this life is somehow wild to lots of children. but we can make a change. we can make great and perfect changes by our words.
    well done. you act as the humanity needs.

    Had to read it a couple of times, its very potent to these times, where its expected of children to grow up to soon, we forget the suffering of others, this is a sad reminder, especially like the second stanza, we need the prayers of all men to listen and work together for solutions.

    An appeal from a helpless heart to be treated with greater dignity and more warmth! ! A cry heard, here, there, every where! ! Heart rending! !
