Too Early Spring

and harvest glow,

looking for hope

never to know,

Too early spring

innocence lost

Came too early winter

dying frost,

Summer gone but a shame

here the child sees

Days of granduer

Triumphs and glories,

unachieved,

covered by winters snow.

Drunkenness
Abusive parents
absent parents
HIV/Aides in Africa
Drug abuse
Abortion
Starvation
Disease
Famines
WARS
Floods
Earthquakes
Child pornography
Child slavery
Child prostitution
Teen pregnancy
Children raising children
