poor unfortunate souls


the children, oh children
what was their fault
was it to be born in a family
with out a father mother or a brother
or was it to be born at all?

poor children, oh children
who is there to help them
their uncle and aunts,
their relatives or friends
or is it, that there's no help at all?

dear children, oh children
my heart cries with pain and sorrow,
it wails for you loses
it aches to find out if poverty has gone sideways
is their anyone who feels their pain at all?

    The children need many champions to not turn away from their cries and you are
    one of these who brings their voices to light. So very heart felt and full of passion
    I salute you for putting this out there for all to see and listen to. Very well done.
    I enjoy your power in its telling
