Little one among so many others without names,
What will you think when you are old enough to know ?
Will you ever ask the reason for your hunger pains ?
And who will answer then ?
What could they say to you ?
How make you understand ?
Will you live long enough to forgive the world ?
O world, how long can we resist the claims of love ?
How long deny identity with sin ?
What must we see before we share the pain ?
World, we must die before we learn to live again.
