About the Poem
This poem is a cry to parents to help stop the violence in our schools. When I saw the news about the shootings at Columbine school I cried then I got mad. Another incidence of violence in our schools. We need to protect our most valuable resources, our children. I hope this poem will encourage people to help make our schools a safe place.
Cry For The Children
|by V.J. Lower|
|Cry for all of the innocent children,
let us band together to stop the violence.
We have to change this evil world,
so that it is a good influence.
Now let us pray for the parents,
and all that day who were hurt.
God’s children, received by the Father,
no more with life will they flirt.
Never more to feel the warmth of the sun,
their lifeless bodies spilled on the floor.
Battle torn, cold and all alone,
where they had fallen the day before.
In America sixteen kids a day are killed,
let’s come together to get rid of the guns.
Pack them in boxes and bury them all,
instead of our precious daughters and sons.
