V Feel ur pain.jpg


Connecticut

V feel ur pain.

They squat on the pavement

Wool-hatted in chilly evening

Small children with candles

Crying out for children

Feeling the pain

Halfway across the globe.

Connecticut

V feel ur pain.

They know guns and drones and IEDs

They know the Taliban

They know Malala

But Adam Lanza has shattered their dreams.

Connecticut

V feel ur pain

As u would feel ours.

They want to believe that somewhere there's a place

Of white picket fences and soft green grass

Where every child is tucked securely in bed

With a full belly

Where every child comes safely home from school.

They want to believe

That somewhere there's a place

Where every child is safe.

They thought that place, that magic land

Was called America.

Connecticut

V feel ur pain

As u would feel ours.

Today they understand

As only children can

That no child is safe

If any child is not

No child is free

If any child is not.

Connecticut

V feel ur pain.

Lighting candles of hope and prayer

To chase away the dark,

To warm cold hearts

To end despair

Calling on us all

To care.
