The Innocent Suffer

Born Free was a shelter for at risk children.
Christmas outreach 2001
Abuse, suffering, hunger, and pain
What’s the purpose, can there be any gain?

The innocent suffer, the innocent cry
I see their agony and I ask myself why?

A child in the street, naked and cold
No food for the belly, wounds that are old

No parents around, there’s no one to care
No home to be found, no love to share

Why does this happen, why must it go on?
Is there any reason when reason has gone?

How many victims do we meet everyday?
Do we take time for them, do we think to pray?

Or are we too busy with our own lives to see
The needy people around you and me?
