*^^^LET DREAMS FLY, BEFORE THEY DIE^^^*---sarah brothers


Luxury is what we aim for,
Us the human race
But there are some who beg to stay alive
In another place
Hunger strikes their little tummies
Thirst keeps their mouths dry
Starvation takes all their strength
And doesnt leave any to ask why
Why cant we have clean water
Why cant we have safe food
Why can we be sheltered from rain
Why must my life be so crude
Mothers and Fathers and sisters and brothers
Suffer before a young childs eyes
The child knows they cannot help
So they must unmercifully listen to the cries
Diseases come, Diseases go
Memories just get worse
When they came into this place
On their lives, froze a curse
Even though their lives are poor
They hold tight to the life rope
Praying that their life will change
They cry tears of hope
