Unseen and forgotten
Seeking help but finding none
Fleeing from one terror to another
With only blind hope to help them along
Who will hear their voices?
Who will listen to the prayers?
A strong man sheds tears
Over a child’s uncertain future
A mother mourns
For a baby who has died
A child yearns
For parents who are lost
They all feel so alone
In a crowd of thousands
Won’t someone hear their voices?
Won’t someone listen to the prayers?
Watching from the safety of your home
You see the horror and the fear
And see their children cry
But it all seems so far away
When really it’s so close
Will you hear their voices?
Will you listen to the prayers?
One voice can make a difference
But whose voice will it be?
Will it be you who speaks up?
For those scared and all alone
Millions are so near
And yet no one will hear their voices?
No one will listen to the prayers?
But anyone can make a difference
You could help those in need
All you need to do is care
Hear their voices
Listen to the prayers
Of the unseen and forgotten
