My Darling Child

Updated on September 5, 2014

Why do they do that mama?

They just do child. They just do.

But we don’t mean them harm.

They just do child. They just do.

.

I’m so hungry mama.

Why can’t we eat like birds?

All the land is gone child.

It was taken with paper and words.

.

I’m so thirsty mama.

Where is water for us to drink?

It used to come from the ground child.

Now it’s in a bottle or from a sink.

.

I’m so tired mama.

Can we stop for a while?

We rest when the world sleeps,

My sweet darling child.

      Heart touching words ! But very true, many live these words in many countries around the globe. Why, because mostly it is about greed and power. There is really plenty for all , but for now food and even shekter are control by forces beyond our reach. Soon to end.

      New World Translation

      Ps 72:16There will be an abundance of grain on the earth; On the top of the mountains it will overflow. His fruit will flourish as in Lebʹa·non, And in the cities people will blossom like the vegetation of the earth.

      Also we have a wonderful future awaiting us very soon . Where these things will be of the past.

      Reference Bible

      Isa 33:24And no resident will say: “I am sick.” The people that are dwelling in [the land] will be those pardoned for their error.eference Bible

      So very sad and true. This is the worst of humanity. You have told the heart-breaking story of a child and children everywhere in the most touching way. Thank you dear Micky!
