One Child...please read...

One child cries out in the night.
One child lives alone on the street.
One child dies from hunger and disease.
One child, one child, too many.

One child dreams of warmth
One child sleeps in dirt.
One child works in a mine.
One child, One child, too many.

One child is enough to make me cry.
One child left, beaten down by hate.
One child worse off than my own.
One child, poor child.

I wish I could hold one child.
I wish I could take them away.
I wish they could call me Daddy.
One child, one child, too many.

I wish one child was my child.
I wish all children belonged to this world
I wish we all would stand and take notice.
To one child, to one child.

One child deserves hapiness.
One child deserves a stomach full.
One child deserves a moment.
One child, our child

One child can change the world.
One child can move a mountain.
One child can make us all smile.
One child, our child.

Don’t ever forget the children…

Artist's Description

This is written for One Child. One child represents all children. I love my kids and they are so very lucky to live without hunger and loss. Believe it or not the majority of children in our world do not have it as lucky. I just wanted to remind us all…

If you this has made you think, please cut it, paste it share it. Do what you can always for One Child.
