Video National Children's Day

We are the Children Bombs fall from the sky The little children wonder why? The night is mixed with blood and tears Screams that deafen the little ones ears In the name of what God or religion? Is this killing seen to serve a mission? In the name of what Tribe or Country? We the children ask you humbly We used to play and run all day Now we hide fearing bombs come our way The days we wander in search of foods Hiding from soldiers intent on blood feuds Bombs still falling from the sky The pain and terror, when shall we die? There is a gun on top a dead soldier there I myself ended this pain that I could not bear The bullet saved me from more despair

THOSE THAT ARE POWER MAD AND CRAZY CARE NOT WHO THEY HURT OR KILL. ONLY WE LOOKING AT THEIR DARKNESS, THEIR EVIL CARE. And such people view us with utter contempt. When true justice would snuff out their miserable lives in a flash should it ever be delivered unto them.. Top flight poetry my friend.A7 and a fav..

That was painful to watch (and read), Arthur. The frankness and reality of what you write is unsettling to think about, as I watch the turmoil from the safety of a computer screen. The children are left with a big "WHY" ... :( America should adopt a National Children's Day as well, I think ...

Truth and pain, sad so many won't leave others at peace, seems both sides are at fault at times, but if you are not wanted somewhere you should get the hell out, then maybe things will get better, peace and love to everyone!

So deep Arthur..I wonder why children have to endure all this..Wbere is the fairytale? the dream? Sometimes I wish to resign from human life..cuz I am so ashamed of all this..Guess apes are much better when it comes to protecting their own..Sad situation indeed Arthur..I heard your cry..Its mine too.
