Cries Of The Innocent


I hear the cries of the innocent
I feel the pain of the broken few
their tears are like valleys of blood
running through humanity

These are the children
these are the brothers
these are the sisters
these are the mothers
these are the fathers
these are the forgotten few
who will die on the streets tonight

I hear the cries of the innocent

    Thank you Poet, you're wonderful. Like my poem 'cries' the entire universe is sepulchral and noisome. None shall hear until they cry and were'nt heard, then they shall know that cries have been going on.
    A piece for mankind. (Report) Reply

    Hope this sensitive, appealing poem evoking painful cries of those Innocent can reach the ears of all who should have heard them earlier! We sympathize with all Innocent people(s) and pray for their life improvement and peace everywhere! (Report) Reply

    What a noble thought you entertain for the cries and pain of all who are going to die on the street that day!
    A brilliant poem! (Report) Reply

    It seems to me that it is usually the innocent who suffer rather than the guilty! Well said Dave. (Report) Reply
