We know that this problem exists but how many of us stop to truly think about it?

away from the woes and pains of the heart

we'll use this voice to speak on behalf

of those innocent little ones whose voices have been maimed

by trials so cruel so merciless, should they be named?

they stripped away the innocence, they tore apart the mind

these deviled beasts seek only to do great harm

delicately and meticulously tearing each petal from the rose

the danger freezes its victims, the beastly carnal mindedness just implodes

let's speak to the rumbles and grumbles of the tender tummies

of those children who are sick, who are homeless, who are without their mummies

what about those who made it to the womb

but could only last a month, their spirits to never bloom

those skin crawling sounds that only go POP

the noises we fear, the ones they adopt

for this is all they know, and this is all they hear

gunshots and bombings shall never disappear

while some are dismembered, others violated,

we still turn to each other with such pure hatred

for we could not get that raise we wanted or fall in love with the guy we dated

the winds of freedom and right to speech have empowered us beyond defeat

in our world where we can walk the walk and talk the talk

let's walk a humble path

and talk a grateful talk

God has granted us more than we can afford

and in our words to each other

let them be the prayer we utter

for those who are less fortunate than us.
