“There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child. There are seven million.” – Walt Streightiff.
I’m a child, I’ve hopes and dreams,
Give me power and I’ll cross the streams.
I stretch out my arms, the horizon I see,
I’ve tried to reach it beyond the sea.
There are those who dream on my behalf!
A doctor? An Engineer? I’d just laugh.
‘Cause I’ve better dreams, you now can see,
I’ve my own talents, please let me be me!
I muse on those friends down on the streets,
No room, no studies, no, nothing to eat.
What’s that child’s dream with no shoes on his feet?
From my window sill, I ponder, I peep.
Let’s reach out to our children, downtrodden and sick,
Empowering them with education and care.
I believe they’d be more Einsteins and discoverers,
Rising out of those dusty streets, to rule….advise,
And maybe change the world for better!
HAPPY CHILDREN’S DAY!!
