Little One

Inspiration: I was reading a news article about a child abuse case going to trial. It talked about having to put a child on the stand. I read the allegations and the visions of a child having to take the stand haunted me for a few hours. Finally, a line rolled through my brain like a freight train. Note: Originally posted in 2008. Reposted to honor witnesses in June 2012.

A scream caught into a smile on his little face

Bad men helping evil men continue to steal his innocence away

That is how he felt

That is what his heart told him…

Play poem below.
