Every Tears a Child Sheds

Every tears a child sheds
Is an accusation against us.
Failure to make a decent world
That allows a child to be a child.

Every tears a child sheds
Is a finger-pointing
At our failings as adults
For not protecting adequately

Every tears a child sheds
Is a challenge thrown in our face
To make changes where they are needed
In spite of our daily grinds

Every tears a child sheds
Is a pain we cannot take back
Something the child suffers
Inscribed in his soul forever
