We Birth Pain

This world births pain like clouds birth rain;
children see what should't be.
Elders pass within their last,
elders passed.....
Days are grey and chances taken
as winter sleeps and spring awakens.
The world has gone and rain remains.
This world births us and we birth pain.

Children singing in the streets,
doctors ending first heartbears.
Little ones play down the road
as gunshots sound and screams let go.
Silent night, but sirens ring.
Cocaine reigns and liquor's king.
Silent night, but sirens ring
Silent night........................
Midnight walks within a park
become races for your life!
Any truth is buried underneath
our lies within the light.
The sun has gone and rain remains;
this world births us and we birth pain.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
