Voice for The Children

This piece was written to be a voice for the children…

Caged, Detained, Restrained and force to stay in places where fear and anxiety are built into the steel bob wires, built into the locked doors and high walls that hide all the innocent, young children …

Children who are confused and bewildered as to their plight, as to what happened to their serene life?

As to what happened to their parents, and why can’t these adults hear their screams, hear their plead, and take them back home?

As of these words the children of Flint are still being ignored on a National Level, still being ignored by Government, a non-caring President, who seems to have a problem with Black residents…

As of these words child abuse is rising, and little broken bones and sad eyes are replacing happy faces that children are supposed to have, joyful, playing faces, that children are supposed to have…

Little sparkling bright eyes were not born to cry, not born to be scorned and mistreated, by hands that don’t give-a-damn about children…

An attack on children is an attack against the future…

Protecting all of them should be a worldwide priority…

As of these words screaming has intensified, if you listen carefully you might hear and you might begin to care…

Save the children from the cages, from parents and others who beat and mistreat them…

Save the children they don’t have to belong to you, to bring out that humanity in you…
