Children smile
Eyes lit
Mischief alight
Children laugh

They have nothing
They live nowhere
The eat nothing
They go nowhere

Games designed
From broken things
Imaginations run amok
Minds breathe

I wish
I hope
I pray
I sigh

Don’t let them
Lose their innocence
Don’t let them
Lose their smiles

For eyes will still
Laughter missing or fake
Hunger gnawing
Will take them away
