THE BABIES CRY

The babies cry~

Running out of tears~

Their faces dry~

Mud caked with fear.

 

The babies cry~

The beavers took the trees~

Water surrounding~

Desolate the doomed place.

 

The babies cry~

And no one hears~

Hearts are numb~

Turning a deaf ear.

 

The babies cry~

When evil is near~

The thunder jolts~

Will help ever appear.

 

 

The babies cry~

When the forest is bare~

They chopped everything~

With out a thought of reverence steered.

 

The babies cry~

In far away lands~

Their heads flat~

Permanent to cold unyeilding beds.

 

The babies cry~

With fur torn away~

These are God’s gifts~

His anger will over pay some day.

 

The babies cry~

With hope help is on the way~

They wait~

They die each passing day.

 

The babies cry~

When the sea is soaked~

As oil wilts~

Smothers and coats.

 

The babies cry~

As they age with wisdom~

Convalesced alone~

Weak in need kept in a prison.

 

The babies cry~

It is announced every where~

The babies cry~

GOD knows they are dear.

 

The babies cry~

Running out of tears~

Their faces dry~

Mud caked with fear.

Lisa...The babies' cry is the cry of all humanity...we all cry for justice, peace, and love...Sometimes we find it, more often we are disappointed and discouraged...Your talent really shines through in this one Lisa...Thank you for sharing...Larry

Whenever a baby cries as a result of hunger, cold or sickness, whenever a mother cries as a result of hopelessness and powerlessness, whenever a father cries for lost dignity, we all stand accused. Like Larry I think the cry of a baby is the cry of all humanity and while one baby, one mother, one father, is in poverty, sickness, loneliness, we are all in danger of losing our humanity.

Thanks for sharing this lovely poem.

Love and peace

Tony
