Poem - Littles In The Land of Big
Age Group: Adult
Littles In The Land Of Big
I see their little faces all around me
In my waking thoughts and in my dreams
Can see their little shadows wavering
And listen to their cries and hear their screams
In death I have seen their pictures in the papers
Wondered at the smile upon their face
Then read their obits in family notices
And wonder why humanity forgets to care
These precious little people of life’s shadows
In search for naught but happiness and joy
Lost within the stygian darkness
Waiting to be hurt and then destroyed
We need to be our children’s keepers
Watch them grow in love and peace
Keep them safe from the Bigger’s anger
So Littles can walk safely in God’s grace
We need to gently hold our lovely children
Calm all their worries and their fears
Stop the hand that is raised in anger
And the violence caused by deep despair
For I was once a Little
In the land that a Bigger ruled
Wore the marks of his anger
And bore his twisting of my soul
Felt his cruel touch of violence
The harsh sound of his words
Lived in fear and drowned in sorrow
In the shadows of my world
So when you see a tear drop falling
Flowing gently down a child’s face
Remember when you were a Little
And the love that dried your tears
