Our Children’s Feet Like Stars
written by: Maria J. Estrada
Our Children’s feet like stars
Will guide us down infinite paths of Love
Beyond the scope of CPS purification
Beyond Lori Lightfoot stealing Covid funds
Beyond the commercial din of consumption
Beyond this disease ravishing young kids
Vaccines for profit
Politicians for profit
CPS for profit
Our children consumed for profit!
A disease born of an older disease
But our children, born of us,
Will march towards a better world
Setting hard hearts free
Dancing towards new planets
Freeing mouths from cannibalizing
Freeing mouths from lying
Liberating! Liberating! Liberating!
Our children, traversing down these roads
Alight with angelic discourse
Towards a world within our reach
Our children will guide us down Infinite paths of Love
Teaching us to be human once more
Teaching us what matters to Live
And truly Die for
And we, WE will walk side by side into the Possible.
