Is This The Best That We Can Do?

We seem so advanced but there’s still,

Far too much hurting in our world,

Homeless children fill our cities,

Out on the street scared and alone,

Frightened that they won’t eat today,

Terrified of their tomorrow,

And all the horrors it might bring,

Still running from the home they knew,

Where growing up was so much worse,

And every day there are more,

Running hard just to get away,

They’re running with nowhere to go,

These innocent children deserve,

Such a better start to their lives,

But they grow up battered, hopeless,

Beaten down before they can start,

Is this the best that we can do?

I’m so ashamed.
