My Motherland
A land full of riches
Yet ravaged by hunger
Thousands, millions perish
Lost and forgotten
A picture of a child
Trying to stand or walk
Yet Fragile and thin
Flesh clings to brittle bones
A picture of starvation
Unable to speak
Fighting a losing battle
Laid down to sleep
A perfect little angel
A child with a future
Lowered into the dirt
What! sorrow and pain
We waste away
Hopes, dreams are shattered
In my Motherland
