In the eyes of a child

In the eyes of a child
lies the birthplace of innocence
the willingness to believe
and the passion to achieve

In the eyes of a child
is the wonder of life
and the curiosity
that fuels learning

In the eyes of a child
is a love unnerving
a love unswerving
that holds you in time
never letting go

In the eyes of a child
are the teardrops of pain
of a life not yet lived
where love was forsaken

In the eyes of a child
is the universe of possibilities
and the detail of complexities
where life meets reason

In the eyes of child
lies the emptiness
from the rape
of her innocence

In the eyes of a child
is the questioning and fear
a life held in a tear
and wiped away
by ignorance

She’s looking at you
she’s looking into your soul
she’s crying for your help
don’t walk away.

  1. a weak cry for help on behalf on children who are being trafficked, abused, maltreated worldwide.. there is so much more I could do.. where does one even begin?
