They were just children

They were just children who happened to be born on the wrong side of a wall that should never have been built.

They were just children
who will never laugh or smile because of greed and hate while we just watch it all unfold.

They were just children
like mine and yours
wirh dreams and hopes all torn, tattered with their bloody clothes.

They were just children
snuffed out for what? while everyone turns their backs on broken hearted mothers.

They were just children, just children of this world abandoned by us all and left to die in agony and pain. Just children.
