Artist's Description

Pastels and pencil drawing on rough paper. Photoshop enhanced

Drawn from a dream that I believe was in response to the horror that I had seen on TV taking place on the continent of Africa. Most notably, Rwanda and the Sudan. The below songs were also inspired by the dream and the plight of those gripped in the jaws of war and calamity. Please forgive my ragged vocals but do hear my plea. One hundred (100%) of all proceeds from this work will be donated to the SaveDarfur Organization: http://www.savedarfur.org/content?splash=yes

“Children of Sudan” Roy-AL Hunt © May 26, 2007
I see you, I see your tears and my soul cries. I hear you and my spirit reaches out to you. You suffer oh children and I suffer too. I lay sweet grass at the hooves of the Horsemen that their steeds may stop to eat and that your suffering for a time, may cease. Whilst I implore, look you Horsemen, listen and hear, and you too will cry… ‘Someone Else’s Bitter Tears’

“Someone Else’s Bitter Tears” Roy-Al Hunt © June 13, 2006
I spend a lot of time wondering if I am out of my mind. Seeing things in places where nothing is. I hear words never spoken into my ear. And I cry someone else’s bitter tears

I am deluged with images from half a world away of innocent children passing their day. Sometimes it’s with sickness and despair. At times there are bombs bursting in the air

How can we expect them to in peace grow when all we offer up is the suffering they already know. There have to be some changes made. Don’t let them become those who hate. This world is not one of their making. All that there is to be given has already been taken

I spend a lot of time wondering if I am out of my mind. Seeing things in places where nothing really is. I hear words never spoken into my ear. And I cry someone else’s bitter tears

All vocals and synthesizer programming by RoyAl. The loop playing throughout the song is “Floating Two Dimensional” © 2002 by Peace Love Productions
