Those who suffer

The young suffer

Who are they

Voiceless for now

Unable to do anything

The young suffer

Where are they

In sorrow and in  pain

Tormented always

Crippled and paralysed

The young suffer

What are we to do

Share their distress somehow

How to do this

In union of spirit and in prayer

Absolutely trusting that God knows

And of course, He does

And his love is more than the love of all combined

Thank God we do not live always on this earth

Thank God we do not know everything

We have not the strength to carry this burden

We have not the ability indeed to even dare to do much

O Lord, help the young, the voiceless and the poor!
