Shadow Children

We are young
We are far
Born in this world as it all falls apart
We are strong
We don't belong
Born in this world as it all falls apart
As we walk among these shadows, in these streets, this field of battle
Take it up, we wear the medal, raise your hands with burning candles
Hear us whisper in the dark, hear in the rain you see the spark
Feel the beating of our hearts, fleeting hope as we depart
All together, walk alone against all we've ever known
All we've ever really wanted was a place to call our home
But you take all we are; the innocence of our hearts
Made to kneel before the alter as you tear us apart

It's not just my favorite book; I love the series. It's really good. I found out about it in 5th grade and read all the books from there.

The Shadow Children series is a series of seven books by Margaret Peterson Haddix about a futuristic country which suffers food shortages due to a drought (Among the Enemy, p. 83) and the effects of the government's attempts to control resources as a way to solidify its power (Among the Enemy, p. 162). The Population Police enforce the government's Population Law, killing or imprisoning "shadow children," any third child in a family.

It's kind of sad to see what the government does to any third child, but it's their attempt to fix starvation. Fortunately, I would be alive if the Shadow Children series was reality.
