Children in the streets chanting WATER IS LIFE

Children chasing each other to whisper I LOVE YOU into the other’s ears so soft it tickles

Children dreaming in their dreams

Children drinking wine and children crying and sometimes both at the same time

Children perplexed at the inaction of their parents

Children wondering why things happen

Children knowing deep down everyone wants to be loved

Children growing and trying to grow

Children holding each other’s hands and children holding their own hands quietly

Children shaken whispering STILL I RISE

Children and their mothers and their fathers singing RISE UP

Children in the streets as one with the Earth awaken
