Blessed is he who considers the poor; The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble. The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive, And he will be blessed on the earth...
It is estimated that ten million children go to bed everyday without food world wide but what is the estimate of children that sleep in the street every night world wide?
I mean the homeless kids.The street kids...
Kids who don't have a place called home
Kids that pass their day and night in the street
These are the kids i mean.
When i talk of street kids, i do not mean kids that peddle in the street,what i actually mean is those kids that are deprived of love, those innocent kids that are subjected to abuse,murder,rape and all forms of evil the society and Government culminate.
Kids that have no care and no one to care for them.
These kids are not Africans, they are Europeans,Asians,Australians,Americans,Caribbeans,and they are not blacks, they are whites too.
These are the kids i am talking of,kids of the street.
Kids that are abandoned by the people yet we talk of the people and for the people.
What is the government all over the world doing about these kids?
These innocent citizens get little or no attention from the government though many government of the World ratified the UN Convention on the right of the child yet there are so many street kids all over the world.Should i talk of India,the Philippine,Brazil,Nigeria,Germany, South Africa,Ukraine,USA,UK, Angola etc...
They blame the parents...
Yes! the blame goes to parents especially single parents and those who are not family oriented thus braining in more than they can afford.
But i believe that you will not argue that;
70% of world street kids don't even know their parents,some have never met neither of their parents,some are abandoned at birth.
It is embarrassing to see so many sky scrappers, tall mansions, modernized prisons all over the world yet less homes for these kids.
Where is the love
I say where is the love
See the president and the minister
They are looting the Earth
They don't care about the Kids
They don't care about our streets
They bring up fake initiatives
They throw in millions of cash
They call it Youth empowerment
But their families-Beneficiaries
Nothing gets to our kids
They are subjected to untimely deaths
Exposed to daily abuse and tribulations
There is no truth with the Politicians
They are just like secondhand car dealers
Liars! Lairs! Liars!
They keep promising and failing
This is not An African Problem
We have white and black kids in danger
They don't care about these kids
They promise education and safety
And i wonder if these kids are citizens
You see them talking of residential homes
They talk of rights and tax rights
They talk of health care and tax care
I am fed up with my President
He keep looting the treasury
The wife is the bursary
While the children are the victims
They don't care about us
I walk through the shadows of death
Upon the Cobras i walk under foot
My cup overflow
SAVE OUR CHILDREN! SAVE OUR CHILDREN! SAVE OUR CHILDREN!!!
