Hear The Children Crying. Poem by DICKSON MSETI

Hear The Children Crying.

I can hear their voices,
listen carefully you'll here them too,
be attentive, you can feel their pain,
but don't just sit there to observe their tears.

just move move your eyes here and there,
you'll hear them around the world,
move your eyes to middle east,
take them to Iraq and Afghanistan,

don't end up there,
go and have a rest in Africa,

If you have strength,
just go around and observe,

A Son of Somali land starving,
A Daughter of Sudan land dying,
Twelve years old girl of Congo raped,
Ooh! just their sound of pain.

I can feel what hurts most,
those they depend on, lean on,
are the Beast who turn on them,
What they care most is what they desire.

Their sound of pain,
is like a music in the Bar,
or a love whisper in the bed room.

Ooh please World,
hear them out, as politics won't,
console them, as they have been abandoned,
rescue them, as they have lost faith,
please, be humble to them, as they've fear hunting them.

A poem of awareness and sensitivity. In Heaven the angels of these tragic children, always behold the face of God. Kind regards, Sandra

I use to have a smile and heart gets warm when hear a baby cry..It is his way of saying here I am, hi! . When a child gets a scratch, give it a care and kiss, the pain away to go! -I smile..I smile when I hear a child saying -mother! I'm hungry, lets go to eat, my choice is ice cream..I always smile while watching any child..I might manage a smile also when I hear this poem's children's cries but I cant watch them...my sight is blurred by my own tears..oh dear children, how unfair this world can be..

this is what i've been saying with every poem i write. around the world millions of people wake up every day in extremly poor neiborhoods. no hope to get out, no way to get out, live in die in the same place. i mean i live in america one of the richest countrys on earth and i still live in the ghetto and always will because nobody cares about people who they see as less human then themselves which inj my opinion is why the world is so. well. doomed basicly, nobody cares about the people who work there fingers to the bone trying to feed there family and will probly keep on doing that for the rest of there lives.
