Hopeful Children

Hopeful Children

A Poem by Silmara McGarry
"

Where there is Dream there is Hope!

"
































There they are, tapping their little feet in sweet drops of silver water;

Dreaming of controlling the clouds, as they pretend to be colourful magical birds,

Gliding across the glittering sky.


The rain falls down on their innocent faces; their moves are so full of gracefulness;

All is forgotten for that moment, no one can take their place.


But where is the hurt? The tears from yesterday, the echo of growling empty stomachs;

The sadness on mum’s face, for the uncertainty of better days;

The whispering of the cold wind in the sleepless nights;

The fear in the praying hearts;

There is no hope, why should you pray? 


Ohhh, but look at the silver drops of rain again, it washes away our pain;

Even if just for a moment, we are one together with the rain.

Whether too much to desire, children are meant to have a few years of innocence before they discover that the world is full of the flaws adulthood has inflicted on it. Thank the Lord and gods that littlies are able to make believe, to climb fluffy mountains and jump in puddles and never, never come to harm.

Your poem is absolutely delightful, yet, hints strongly at how fragile life is for children.. how easy it is spoil by so-called grown.ups.

Lovely images! They do help us to forget ourselves....we take life too seriously as adults....those growling empty stomachs keep us running, hopefully to ensure one day that their minds do not remain empty :)

The imagination of children is contagious....and the scene you set is so lovely. It is true, children are often unaware of the hardships their parents endure though they are living through them. They only know they are alive...and they are happy. So lovely. Lydi**

Nature often brings hope to many and that release alone can make the difference,
and you have it here in your words with the lovely picture, too.
