Children Smile


ethiopia-boy

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
