How Many Children? (Holiness)



how many children
are hungry this morning?
how many children
without a home?

how many children
with only one parent?
how many children
.....with none?

how many children
faced with no future?
how many children
thrown to the side?

how many children....
and how many know?

    I really like this, they will be a lot more children,
    Than we'll ever know. The governments would never
    give the real figures. Good poem. (Report) Reply
