REMEMBERING YOUTHS IN POVERTY
Global Poverty takes Global Action
~ I WISH ~
I wish the world were a safer place,
For every boy and every girl, no matter their race.
I wish the world could hear the cries of the poor
As children run around searching for food; knocking door to door.
I wish the world could give them what they need
It's not their fault; tell me, is this not your seed?
I wish the world would teach us how to love
A simple message given unto us first, from above
I wish the world would give us a little bit more time
Maybe we will get it right; in hopes that everything works out fine.
I wish those living in the world, choose to be kinder
I have no qualms, this is just a simple reminder
I wish you understand my desires; a premise for which I take
Be it your child or mine, heaven makes no mistakes
I wish to get it right, acknowledging that my wishes are not about the world; but rather the people in it.
I wish, I didn't have to WISH.
