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.

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

The foolishness of human being one day will give place for reason. On this day everybody will be dealt as f God's children.

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