   Don't cry for the children


who walk upon broken glass


swim in the oceans of confusion


are humiliated for unrespected passions


poisoned with the fruits of evil


perished in the fires of hollow hearts


dropped from the towers of humans


and born from shaky hands.

Cry for what you call yourself,


if you can't seem to care.



Don't cry for the children



who bleed in the war of trust


sip from the rivers of death


walk in the shadows of shivers


play the strings of sadness


ask from an unforgiving God


dream stolen memories


and turn over frozen leaves.

Cry for what you call yourself,


if you can't change their destiny.
