A Child's Cry

At times I wonder where I am going

The Streets seem so lonely

The lights in the night shine down on me

The sounds of the city deafening at times

The children around me seeming to be as lost as I

Huddeling together for warmth and love

Alone at times even in a crowd

The chill of the night

The hunger in our bellies

The fate it seems as a fence of non-exsistant wire
Surrounds us…..

No way out..no where to go

Screaming desire to be free

Tears run like water on our faces

Hands cold with no gloves

Fingers touching to stay close

Mountains of steel surround us….

Valleys of streets and cars

Water from the sewers rushing by

Steam rising to keep us warm

Houses of cardboard..as shelter

Hear our cries….

Guide us home

Quiet this longing for a real family

Lonely always wandering….

Tears shed by children…..

Wanting to be free

Eyes hollow and empty

Seeing only dispair

Eyes meant to see happiness and joy

Are waiting hidden..
Take our hands..

Lead us to this place

Where the tears no longer

Run down this face

A Child's Cry
