Not Our World……?

Camouflaged by cries and moans

In the middle of a hundred beds

You’re in pain

Too sad to even cry

Too weak to even try

 

Submerged in hurt,your heart sinks

You make no sound

Knowing silence is best

Must stay hidden in this mess

A child’s soul silently shatters

 

Every day harder,every dawn a challenge

Malnournished,both body and mind

Tummy rumbles,fingers fumble

A stumble and life tumbles

Any hope crumbles

 

You miss your Mom

Never told why and where she’s gone,or even how long

‘Mama Mama’ you wake from a nightmare

But mamma’s not there,freightened you remember

It isnt a bad dream ,you’re actually here

 

A dad ,you never had

A father is foreign to you

Like Christmas and birthdays

Smiles and laughs

Hopes and joys

 

Your little brother lays next to you

So sick he looks older

He’s ill, but could be cured with a pill

Yet that will not come and one morning

He will lie so perfectly still

 

You shiver as you touch his skin

So cold

He is scared

Tears slide silently down

Hungry hollow cheeks

 

You watched greedy hands get passed dirty cash

They traded your sister

Grabbed by the wrist and now you miss her

A thousand miles away a rich man pays to kiss her

She’s a business man’s late night joy ride

 

It’s a struggle for you to find hope

The emptiness gives no inspiration

Forgotten all aspirations

What is your future

Have you a future.

 

Far far away

A lttle child plays with a toy,made by a little boy

Society turns a blind eye

Far far away

To our conscious we do lie.

 

A little boy walks to a window

Looks up from down low

And wishes on a falling star

A Simple wish, but we are blind to this

He wants us to remember where the unlucky are.

 

The whole world shares the same sky

But there is such a distance

Too much between rich and poor

We distance them,Its not our world

It’s a third world.
