"Tis Always The Season..."

We were once the same children that cry today

and WE cried for the same reasons as they do now…

 

Being cold hasn’t changed, and hunger still hurts.

Always seeing what they haven’t

and being told what they can’t.

Heads held down because homeless isn’t just a stateless mind…

its every time they left everything behind

…til even tomorrows

are just more …todays…

 

Children FEAR what we feared and feel as WE felt -

And mommas still cry and daddies go away.

And we ALL needed Teddy Bears to have and hug…

 

And we taught ourselves how to really pray -

the prayers that MEANT something to us

because they WERE ABOUT each   of   us...

 

Some of us got to grow up

and some of us have got to grow up

and some…well, they’ll never grow

and are only memories’ tears shed over and over again.

 

Remember YOUR stars and what you prayed for -

and help the little ones touch theirs as only you can,

and maybe - just maybe - the fears will lessen

and we can really look to heaven …and smile.

Life isn't "fair" it just is what it is - a semblance of existence and place holding...
Your heart shows through on this. You are accurate in your opinions and the way you see things. We must put ourselves in their place if we want to understand. Very touching poem.
