When the World …

3 Comments

When the world falls down
with scabby knees
and chipped teeth
who will parent this hurt child
and kiss its’ wounds ?
 
When the world shudders
from carrying the weight
of humanities ignorance
who will educate
those that need to shore the walls ?
 
When the world weeps
as its beauties and wonders
are raped in to extinction 
who will pour the tears
back in to the ocean ?
 
When the world cries out
as humanity strikes
its mean fist against one another
who will step in
to comfort the sorrowful ?
 
When the world shouts with joy
to be finally clean and free
of the vermin that have plagued it
who will be here
to witness the rebirth ?
