Jewels of a Nation

MISLAID TREASURES

By:  Shawn Ashman

What is happening to our children? nobody seems to care

They are disappearing, it’s like they evaporate in thin air

Every day the numbers are published, during the nightly news

Did you realise that it’s a new list, every day to peruse?

 

We need to insist that our children are safe and adored

And not send them to beg and sell, at people’s vehicle doors

Teach them to love and show them love too

Hug them and praise them, and say, I love you.

 

Our children are disappearing, and we are still having more

It’s like a social symbol, that makes us feel secure

Why don’t we just feed the many children that need care

Provide a safe place for them to walk, play, and live without any fear.
