Every day on my way to the office
I see children without shoes
Wearing old clothes;
they are not warm enough.
I see them in the morning,
They have not had their breakfast
Because they had not a bread loaf at home.
On the other side
I see children with many possibilities
They have schooling,
They are not walking to their school
They are dressed very nicely.
I think about both kinds of children
The one looking for a piece of bread
And the one who has everything.
I can ask God to keep them healthy
I ask God to give them equal rights.
Directors and high-ranking people
Send their children
To the most expensive schools
But they never think about those
Who sleep without dinner.
I do not know why
They do not do something
For the poorest of us.
I do not know what I can do
For poor children,
When I see them
I try to give them a pen
They say, “Sister, give me money.
I want to buy food for my family.”
They are very young
And can think only about food
For their family.
What will be their future?
Who is responsible?
It is our government,
And it is me,
And it is you.
We all are responsible for them.
