Have A Heart

by Jessica Hawley
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Every child has a mind
Every child has a thought
Every child has a heart
Every child has a feeling
Every child has a right

Some people take this away
Some people think they have a say
Some people don’t seem to have a heart
Some people think they have a right

Child Abuse happens everyday

No matter what we say
Five plus deaths each day
The statistics stand
But will we?

We should all have a heart
We should all have a thought, a feeling
We should all stand up
We should listen, we should be aware
We should take action one by one, side by side

We must embrace the time we have, and not let this crime push us back
We can’t just let this slide, if we see it
We must repeat it
If it can’t be We, then why not I

Someone wise once told me, “Everyone is someone in the life of a child.”

Every child has a mind
Every child has a thought
Every child has a heart
Every child has a feeling
Every child has a right

Their smiles, their ideas, their voices light me up
I don’t want that to burn out
I don’t want their smile to turn to tears
I don’t want a child to live in fear

A child will not forget the past
But a child is the bright future
They need us, and we need them

We must have a heart, we must stand up
