CHILDREN OF THE STREETS…

 Children of the streets…

 They lay there little heads on cold concrete

 With no homes Children of the streets

 No food or blankets

 They are financially deprived

 Each morning they awake, thinking God for another night survived

 We walked down the streets where they lie

 We see their sad faces

 Yet we just turn our heads and walk on by

 Offering no help, no support

 To find them homes is up to the courts

 But if the courts fail, who’s to blame

 While we point our fingers at each other

 The children of our streets spend another night out in the rain

 Stephanie A. Kinzel July 24, 1996
