The Homeless Child

We ask why
how?
in 2009
a homeless child.
Look deep into the eyes of pity
look deep into the need
don't rush by
to busy to care
too important to stop
and ask
why?

Do we care enough
to try and stop this
when we all know
it is wrong.

A homeless child is
hungry,
cold,
wet,
unloved
dirty,
smelly.
Do we care
is it our problem?

pass by quick
then
you will not see,
nor smell,
nor think,
nor care.
Out of sight
out of mind.

But the child remains
vulnerable
abused
till it dies
unwanted.

Quote of the moment:

"PEACE
NOT WAR
GENEROSITY
NOT GREED
EMPATHY
NOT HATE
CREATIVITY
NOT DESTRUCTION
EVERYBODY
NOT JUST US"
