We Say We Love Our Children


We say we love our children

Yet we offer them up for slaughter to feed the gun industry

We say we love our children

Yet we throw food away and stand by and watch them go hungry


We say we love our children

Yet we put them through school weapon drills that traumatizes them to cover our schools legal asses


We say we love our children

Yet we sentence them to a longer time in our foster care system than we give prison sentences to the people who abuse them


We say we love our children

Yet we continue to look to them to lead the way instead of growing up ourselves and being the elders that they need


We say we love our children

Yet far too many of them go without adequate healthcare


We say we love our children

Yet we funnel our poor and children of color through the school to prison pipeline to provide cheap labor for private industries


We say we love our children

Yet we continue to send our young boys and girls into war because our old men don't know how to talk


We say we love our children

Yet we continue to rape the planet that holds their future


We say we love our children

Yet all of these things above tell a different story because

We say we love our children when what is evident is we don’t even know how to love ourselves
