Within the tome, amongst the pages you’ll find,
emotive words, from hearts & souls, of a younger kind.
Unable to vote, yet parents they lose,
Is something missing, from the headline news?
Enforced separation, societies fault?
Judgementally rubbing wounds, with the proverbial salt.
To think the issue uncommon, or rare,
no empathy towards, an obligated child care.
Deprivation, isolation, loss and despair,
Societies conscience open, found, thread-bare.
Here I take the final word.
ALL our children should be SEEN and HEARD.
