Can you hear the children crying?
Some are hungry some are dying.
Numbing poverty's to blame,
tiny limbs on tiny frames.

Can you hear the children sighing?
Swollen bellies few are thriving.
Civil wars and genocides,
leave them nowhere left to hide.

Can you hear the children screaming?
Turn your head pretend you're dreaming.
Close your eyes and go your way,
say you'll help some other day.

Psalm 145:16 "You are opening your hand and satisfying the desire of every living thing."

Can you hear the children playing?
See them pet the newborn yearling.
Fun and food and lots of sun,
good things now for everyone.

Can you hear the children laughing?
Watch them plant the tender sapling.
Mom and dad and grandma too,
helping earth be born anew.

Can you hear the children singing?
Voices raised all ears are ringing.
Praising Jah for what he's done,
songs that also thank the Son.

Revelation 21:4 "And He will wipe out every tear from there eyes, and death will be no more,
neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."
the sad reality of many children's plight; the hope of tomorrow

hope is essential to the human psyche, regardless of what the skeptics say

it will take divine intervention to fully address this and other issues (Psalm 72)
