Empower Childhood.

by Chandra Prakash Sharma & Zuhura Seng'enge.

Childhood comes with trailing glory
Each child has a different story
Some are born with silver spoon
For them the faery land’s boon

Others in dingy darkness born
Of decent life they are shorn
They live in hatred and scorn
All through childhood they mourn

Let us the poor child empower
Make him not victim of man hour
Give him a chance to play and grow
Don’t give his jolly life a blow

Allow his body and mind bloom
Let not the terror on him loom
In them our future make secure
Lest disease and disgust them devour

Let not penury freeze their rage
Let us not them keep in cage
If we want to take big strides
Educate and fill them with pride

Let not the child by hunger damned
Child labor everywhere be banned
Let us amend the law of land
For joyous childhood take a stand

Knowledge for them as they grow
From there happy humanity flow
‘Child is the father of man’ we know
Let childhood bound in piety glow.
