His innocence stolen
Decency deprived
His toddler teeth
Grinds bones
To have a meal
His tender hand
Put to plough
All for survival
Who will rescue this lad
From this life of uncertainty
Who will
Who will echo his plight
From this life suffering
Who will
Who will give his voiceless voice a voice
From this life of obscurity
Who will
Of what stake does the future hold
A chance to grow normal
A chance to decent living
That is all he desires
Help take one child off the street today
Help put them in school
Help secure their future
For a sane society tomorrow
Help a child smile today
