For Now…

Lil sister spins round in circles

oblivious to her public surroundings.

She is alive in the moment

embracing all that she perceives with open arms.

For now,  she revels in her innocence.

Her sweet little light radiates and it is infectious.

She is completely unaware of the dangers

that await her growing up as a commodity

in a world wrought with exploitation ,

gender inequality and  isms innumerable.

For now,  big sister watches, directs, and looks out for

little sister… she is safe and protected in the womb of family…

For now…

    Sadly powerful, Dani. You say so much in so few words. Excellent poem.

    Thank you sweet Cher. When I witness such sweet innocence I struggle whether to be happy for them or sad knowing that one day it will be dashed. sighs… :)

Got something to say?
