Read Poem: For The Children by Devan Gavin

So much to look for in a world of madness
So little to die for in a life of sadness
So much to change for the sake of tomorrow
So much red tape guiding people to sorrow

Where is the future you promised your children?
Why are there fires in buildings they’ve lived in?
Why is it unsafe that they walk down the streets
That you build for their lifelong lovers to meet?

You’ve sold it and them, and the worst is you know it
All for your own future, and for that, you destroyed it
So pray that the children will live for tomorrow
That’s all you can offer when you leave them with sorrow
