Our Beautiful Children…. Poem by Hebert Logerie

Our Beautiful Children….

Rating: 4.1

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.

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.

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!
