Hello dear bards....
Please comment, rate and support this sacred cause to save children from all kind of abuse and exploitation.

A Child`s Cry.......

Could my words be rooted in your hearts serene
And wish to host my woes and screams
And sweep off these nightmares
And to bring me lovely dreams.

Ah! late in the night,
when the whole world gets quiet
And the distant stars
Take on the horrid darkness
With meek and feeble light.

I pray to thee
O lord of the heaven and earth!
Why have I been so fret since birth?
Could I be secured from the life obscure?
And get rid of all my woes and fears?

I am a flower distant to be bloomed
I am a child save me from doom

    It's really a nice poem with simple lines apart from two last lines-best ones. I can hear the crying child, figure out it's mean e.t.c. Thanks friend for gifting me with your art.
