Little Feet ( inspirational poetry by Whonunuwho))

Little feet do march about...
Little feet do march about...
In African climes a harshness found...
In African climes a harshness found...
On Asian shores little relief is found...
On Asian shores little relief is found...
In Europe's streets small feet are cold...
In Europe's streets small feet are cold...
Our American pride has much to hide...
Our American pride has much to hide...
Our grown ups world is for little ones as well...
Our grown ups world is for little ones as well...
A child's precious life deserves much more...
A child's precious life deserves much more...



Around this world, and on every soil,

little feet to march, amid all the toil.

Homeless ones to seek some care,

Only to find, not any to spare.


Africa's harsh land and in its heat,

Offers little hope, promotes defeat.

Asia's climes, across wide expanse,

Sparsely provides, without a chance.


Europe's children, many in despair,

Approach each day, with few so fair.

Through winter's, bold, their lives to hold,

Their feet to march in ice and cold.


As America takes pride, so much to hide,

There many small ones hurt, just to reside.

By city streets, and as on the country lane,

Many to do without, only to live in pain.


A caring world, every little one does seek,

Just to exist, the precious, mild and meek.

The Grown ups world, is their world as well,

Seeking responsible adults, for all to tell.


Every mother's child is as one of ours, also,

And in an all caring love, is for us now to show.

All the comfort and security, each child does deserve,

A continuation of hope, we will help to preserve.

It's sad and so unfair that too many children are deprived and suffering. We must protect, nurture, and cherish the little feet in our lives.

We are to be ashamed for not using our resources as a world in caring for the small ones. Thank you for your kind words. whonu

Amen to that. There are far too many children with no home, no path, no future, no love (in fact, one is too many). Your poem is beautiful; we have two poems for the price of one with your wonderful photos.

This can't fail to touch anyone's heart and we need to act upon that.
