What's Happening To Our Children?

Look into their hollowed eyes and tell me you don't care. There are so many hurting and it's more than I can bear. What happens to our young that makes them crave the pain? How could they feel so helpless that it drives them near insane? So many young are cutters. They have a thirst for tears. Where are all their parents while they're out facing their fears? How can we save these children? It kills me when I know that underneath they're dying yet the scars they don't let show. If I could give them strength and help them see the way... I'd trade them my tomorrows if that gained them one more day.
