I Saw A Child


  • By MiCi

    Today I saw a child
    riding a bicycle
    On a government forsaken road
    Half a lane
    Once tarred
    With potholes small and big
    But wide enough to swallow dreams
    Such as winning a gold medal
    At the Olympics
    Yesterday I saw a lass
    With a ball
    On a pitch of stones
    And shattered glass
    I saw passion
    But it was chasing the wind
    With a bleeding feet
    She striked the ball
    But hunger struck
    And a dream dropped dead
    I know you are seeing
    You have seen, and
    You will still see
    But,
    Please,
    Tell that child
    To keep his life
    Till its gone beyond the reach
    Of this world
    And its government
    No alarm wakes dead dreams
