Speech after speech,
Children are facing hunger,
Speech after speech,
Children are being forgotten,
Speech after speech,
Children will fear,
Speech after speech,
Children will notice.

Children will notice the stress,
Speech after speech,
Children will imitate what they see,
Speech after speech,
Children’s lives become insignificant ,
Speech after speech,
Children’s dreams crumble down,
Speech after speech.

Children will look up to us,
It is up to us to look down.

-Alejandra Ramos Gomez, 2017.
