The Promise to Children

Image result for free image of children


Does the world recognize the need
To be a child first and then proceed
To learn the alphabets
To drink the cup of friendship
Does the world recognize this gift

On the day a child conceives in the womb
A mother's need is awakened
To nourish and sustain the child within
And bring forth the wondrous joy with love

Some are bereft of food
While others are displaced from their homes
With no running water
Or the bright neon light
Will they manage to make it to adulthood

Children are the promise of promises
Owed by the world that awaits
To see them partake
And claim their stake
In a safe and just world they desire to be raised

The promise to children are sacred
A gift borne to us
They represent  the human race
To hold fort the future of man...
