Childhood innocence

Another shooting on the news

A man begging with no shoes 

Planet warming valley in drought

Leaders offering nothing but doubt

Wild fires ever blazing wide

Hurricane storming on by 

Debt piling up ever higher 

Getting credit increasingly harder

Still smiles on children’s faces

Their laughter filling spaces

They need not know just yet 

The disappointment so many met

They’re filled with joy and hope 

And their innocence helps me cope
