Now We Speak..

Updated on June 19, 2013
Source


The stories we hold, took years to unfold, locked up and never told.

Now we speak,for we are no more cowards hidden in a cove..

Helpless,controlled

We tiny kids

dripping slowly

in every spot

tears

blood

so cheap in your black markets

Easy to shed

Easy to serve on silver plates

Victims we are

Of your blind eyes

and deaf ears

Think of us when you come to take out swords from ploughshares

and give green light to jets to throw loads of hate and tanks to beltch up deadly weight

We tiny kids

Vulnerable are

Looking for though measures

held against firearms manufacturers

Not a cacophony

Of dancing words

From conferences

And assemblies.


We want to live and play

seesaw,hide-and-seek

and all other games

If you want to fight over a land

a piece of earthy cake

Or over a chair

Or even over a woman

Just do it in Colosseum

Or in outer space

Away from our sight

we are squemish

Allergic to X-Rated reality TV show.

When you finish

Wear the girdle of partriotism

around your waists

and say:We are the champions

when the devil pins medals on your chests.


Because of you

Twenty kids

Killed by a fool

In the God's land

Because of you

A million in the Horn

are moaning,crying

dying in silent.

      @Debbie.I am so sorry I forgot to comment on what you said here that time.I was a bit pushed for time.Kids are victims of our greediness ,selfishness,false tenacity.I don t understand why anytime there is a tension or misunderstanding between nations,they hurry to take up weapon and start the process of annihilation of each others.That is really so crazy.

      Touching to read. Sad because it made me reflect on so many innocent kids killed last year and again 2013 - it's still going on. I'm glad you wrote this, to make people like politicians, angry people, teens set on revenge etc. think twice about their actions.

      May these little Angels rest in peace and God comfort their parents and families.

      @Eddy,Thanks for the comment.I am not with gun control.I am with taking guns from people by force and shut down weapon factories.Taking lives is not the human business.We are here to mingle,live,coexist,love God and His creatures.
