My EYES are in tears

My HEART in pain

Deep thoughts overwhelming my mind

Sweet bitter pain in my heart

Their faces are hungry

Begging for food

Orphans of our world

Homeless not hopeless

We appeal for LOVE

Begging for help

We are the children of poverty

Sons and daughters of want

Abandoned, poor and battered

Food we beg each day

We ask for help

We are the children of the world

Sons and daughters born of a woman

Please give us a life

Make us all equal

Stop the discrimination

End the inequality

Halt the corruption

No more abortion, no more killings

We are all equal

Make the world a better place

Bring out the laughter on our faces

Make food like water

Treat all equal

Let the music of love flow to all

Brighten our faces with your friendship

Bring us all together

Black, white and red

Because we are one

Let's love one another

Care and protect one another

For life is SWEET when we share it with OTHERS.

The Infinite Power is within. One with God is a majority. Anyone who truly understands a mere fraction of this Infinite Power within, need not beg anyone for anything.

How could you have ever doubted your abilities? This a marvelous poem filled with heartfelt pleas - you give a voice to those who have no voice. We can all help, even a tiny bit if we are suffering too, but share whatever you can. This is so beautiful my friend, thank-you!
