Our Beautiful Children…. - Poem by Hebert Logerie

Our beautiful children are dying
In Africa, Europe, the Middle East
Asia, the Americas,
And in every projects where there is no peace.
Our black children are dying
For lack of basic necessities and because of the lies
And the carelessness of their greedy leaders.
Our white children are dying
Because of the expensive weapons and the nuclear reactors.
Our brown children are dying
Because of the selfishness of the oppressors
Our yellow children are dying
Because of the savagery of the dictators.
Our beautiful children are dying,
When will they stop suffering?
We forgot that we were once beautiful children.
When will this senseless carnage end?
We should love them and protect them.
We should feed them and help them.
Let the rainbow display the colors of heaven.
Let's fill up the air with love; let's ring and ring
The bells of happiness on this beautiful land,
In every street corners and every Carrefour
Let's stop this holocaust, this bloody war in Darfur.
Let the colorful doves caress the blue firmament
And let the children play together under the heavenly tent.

    it's the beautiful earth's future that's dying, isn't it? i think it's 'an elegy to beslan' in which i expressed a similar concern...all humans have similar concerns. wonder where lies the gap between concern and action! (Report) Reply

    All children are beautiful irrespective of their race and color.
    And let the children play together under the heavenly tent.

    Beautiful children are suffering everywhere. black or brown
    white or bright. Some have no food others are love starved.

    Read yah, loud and clear. What else can I say, it's beautiful, lovely, gorgeous, fantastic, etc... how could you write that way...very creative, profoundly written, touch my heart, it even bleeds me furiously. Oh my this is wonderful, wish I could also write like this. Very talented indeed. Over all impression - I've already given all the superlatives that I could think of. Mind you, I love children too, no race stratification. Thanks... (Report) Reply

    Beautiful thoughts but who shall bell the cat? It's really terrible to see all these ugly things taking place in the world but trust me, the world is out of human hands. Why anyone should stop these killings, when no material gains can be made? Though I call it a brave attempt to plead for the children of the world, regardless of their colors, races or creed.

    I very much appreciate the work for its very loafty theme. Even though man is against war, he has subconsciously accepted it. Why? Because he thinks that it is a defensive mechanism in this material world. He forgets that his defensive mechanism can be viewed as an offence by the world. Bible hasn't taught us this line of action. Then, why are we after it? If we can't accept others as our brothers and sisters, where is the real salvation? Dickens had cried for the upliftment of children but who has really paid attention him? Only through unconditional love can we build a bright and prosperous world. Weapons will only fetch more weapons. A pat will go a long way. (Report) Reply

    Well said, we live in a world full of greed which is using up its resources fast, and to top it all not sharing it with those that need. (Report) Reply

    The Innocent's, caught in struggles of power and greed, not only criminal in our World, but Morally criminal for Man to act in such a way. Heartbreaking to see and praying it will stop. God Bless You for the words you wrote. (Report) Reply

    'We forgot that we were once beautiful children.
    When will this senseless carnage end?
    We should love them and protect them.
    We should feed them and help them.

    This poem brought tears to my eyes...we must save all the world's children. Poignantly beautiful poem. Your poem reminds me of a childhood church song that I took to heart at a very young age. 'Jesus love the little children...all the children of the world'. I do not consider myself to be religious since I don't follow any one particular religion, but I am very spiritual and I believe the best way to honor God is to honor his children...All of them. I love your message and I hope many hear it. (Report) Reply
