"While planets reach from Earth to Mars,
it is our children who are stars.
They are the ones who light our way,
the only ones who hold no sway
with all the worldly wrongs in life,
all war, destruction, senseless strife.
When adult's ways fail children, they manage to fail all,
for only children pose the questions wise men cannot call.
Only child eyes smell the oceans and a longing to be free,
it is they who see the middle earth from heaven to the sea.
It is they who make the waves light up the milky way to Mars,
it is they who are life's future, it is they who are the stars.'
