Children, join hands
it may not be
that you will fight
for your country.

Children, sing songs
gather in play
you may not be here
the next day.

Children, give love
to the people around.
They need your wishes
they need your kisses.

Especially parents
who struggle to bring
meaning to the world
you live in.

Children be glad
that you are not old.
Children be sad
that you are not told

why the sick world of adults
circles around
painting the ground
painting the ground

with blood.
