The Who Why When

The Who Why When & Where Who sees all those beautiful children, Playing in the street? Who gives them a hot plate of food, When theyre hungry and theyre beat? Why is there so much senselessness? In this crazy World, Today? Why do people ignore the facts, These children suffer, in Every way! When do those people see, The fear inside their eyes? Probably... never because, All theyre used to is lies. Where do these children go, When they play their lonely games? Where do their smiles come from, The ones that have no names? How do the children feel, Why do they feel no love? And, the only One they can count on, Is Himright there.above? Who will tuck them in at night, Andsay they really care? Whos going to show what they already know, The who, why, when and where? Rebecca J. Martin

I've been writing now since I was a very young kid. I mostly re-create words and their feelings into poetry. I'm not a pro...I'm not well-known...I am JUST ME :)!!! Here is a poem I wrote a while back when I was looking at one of those commercials about those beautiful children in Africa and other countries... sure, they advertise for people to donate money...but, do we know for SURE where that money REALLY goes or how much REALLY helps those wonderful sick and hungry children? They've basically had all their questions answered (The who...who's going to care for me when my parent's are no longer around. The Why...Why doesn't anyone help me? The When...when will someone rescue me? And, the Where...Where will this help come from?!), that is most of them had (besides the very few who HAVE had some caring stranger come to them, pick m' up, cradle their almost lifeless bodies in their arms...to carry them off to a NEW life...one where they can heal...regain their strength (something most don't recall) and, be loved unconditionally).
SO, basically, THESE WORDS here are MY way of trying to deal w/ all the suffering these children do unnecessarily!!
