These Little ones in search of a
Yet many turn their backs and
look the other way
So desperately needing for
all to take a stand
Yet most sit in silence
and so few offering a hand.
Alone in silence for their justice
they cannot speak
For the many a deaf ear,
little voices never reach
Not hearing their
hearts cry, to be given a chance
for them to speak up and take a stance.
They're shut off from the world in
so many ways
And slowly each day they slip
Little hearts quickly shut down
and build a wall
Children fearful of

Just crumbs their thrown from the
Government it seems
Not enough to help them
grow, and keep alive their dreams
the light from their eyes begins to
Becoming no longer reachable, and from
all are so afraid.
Thrust into a school without
caring and watchful eyes
Because of funding

Children.. "The Forgotten" So little they
So many parents mislead, and by the

just by refusing to see
That the system is
failing them, and ignoring a Mother's plea.
I will speak out for these
children until the end of my days
For I have
a child as this, that has been turned many times
I am her Mother and advocate, a voice
that refuses to be ignored
And will continue
to fight for all children until justice is
