Guess What

Children will always be children
In the sun let them play
As long as you keep them hydrated
In the cold let them play
As long as you keep their little bodies warm
In the rain let them play
As long as you keep them dry
Through thorns let them walk
As long as you keep their little feet booted

On African hill slopes they will slide on their bums
As long as we let them have childhood fun
Before the winds of this world have blown them all over
Hydrate their tender brains with the Word of wisdom
Keep their little bodies warm with Love
Keep them dry with the Word of hope
Their feet shod with the Word of Life
Be their torch bearer to Eternal Life
For children will always be children no matter what!

    Your poem reminds of the songs which goes....Let the children play
    Let the children have tbeir way
    Let the children play

    I forget the artist though
