A Child’s Cry (tanka/haiku) *

In March I will be starting my third year of blogging. When I begin following someone’s blog, I don’t dive deep into their archives, although I know there might be some delicious mental morsels to enjoy. So till my anniversary date I will be posting some of my archived morsels.

wish I were a lion

attention I would receive

which is what I need

~~~

I am but a child

Roar I must to be heard

Look not the other way

Turn not a deaf ear to me

Hear what troubles me deep

*Note: I don’t usually broach political issues, but child welfare is a concern of mine. One of our largest resources, yet one of our biggest failures as a society are the forgotten children. Those that live in poverty, homelessness, parental abuse/addiction (then shuffled through the system). Yet those in power cut funding to many programs that would help and make a difference in the lives of these children. ๐ŸŒŽโœŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™ Take care, be safe.
