Is this fair?
Do their lives not require
The happiness tattooed in yours?
Does it not destroy their bones
Spending all day doing chores?
Are their bodies fully satisfied
By the dirty diseased water?
Does it not shatter a mother’s heart
To watch the death of her own daughter?
Is it fair that a few hours sleep
Is the closest they have to a vacation?
Or that thousands of little children
Have no choice, no life, no education?
Do you think they like to spend their days
Hoping that there will be a tomorrow?
Does a child have to watch his parents
Go through such pain and sorrow?
They need our help, need our support
Or this situation will always remain
We will be selfish and take advantage
As they live their lives in pain
