Hush Little Baby

Hush little baby

There's no need to cry

The world already has

Too much sorrow

But not enough joy

So please little baby

Promise me that

When you grow up

You won't add

To the growing

Fumes of despair

That pollutes the air

And reeks of salt

That came from your eyes

And from the eyes of

Countless others

There is no need to weep

Because don't you see

Far across there

That the sun is shining?

You can touch the sun

And let it melt into your palm

If only you try to reach it

And little baby

I will pray that you do
