Thoughts of a Child


silent reflection
what does innocence ponder
i pray it’s not pain

- 0 -

dreams wait at bedtime
she thinks about butterflies
and a girl with wings

- 0 -

is this the right door
alice ponders her escape
playing hide and seek

I can identify with this. A child ought to be left as a child and not have their innocence stolen.
Hits home to me for it's powerful imagery.
