And the Children Cry

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: June 23, 2018

A lament for the illegal immigrant children separated from their families&hellip'

Children without mom and dad
are now detained, afraid and sad.
These huddled masses (poor and tired)
are yearning to breathe free.

Children with a future here
currently constrained by fear
cannot imagine what's in store
removed from family.

Children without cause for blame
who (on the backs of parents) came
pray to a God who wills for all
that justice will prevail.
