"A Child At Dream"
Sitting in silence on the playground swing
watching the other children run and sing.
Wondering what it feels like to be that carefree.
To know I am loved, just because I am me.
No shouts of anger and verbal dismay
to sting in my ears and cause heart decay.
No slaps to cause shadows of yellow and blue
to cover my body and leave me unglued.
No huddling in corners to hide from the fear
of being discovered and tortured right here.
Do not make a sound as my heart pounds away.
Leaving me breathless, but alive another day.
A child with no name, no hope, and no home.
To live in this fear and to own it alone.
My cries go unnoticed to others around.
Hearing their silence makes a deafening sound.
Dreams of tomorrow where innocence thrives
and I can be me; happy and alive.
Sitting in silence on the playground swing
watching the other children run and sing . . .
