Once A Child

Older now in age,

I rage inside earth.

The dirt I step on I

my feet disperse.

Sun and clouds a

nice day for us is

a sun and moon I

their orbit quiz.

Children watch as

we soil the world;

innocent their eyes

are as if a sword.

Beneath a surface,

that’s known war,

I look deep in me;

dive down explore.

Mirror mirror see

all vanity breathe;

inside a calamity is

where I am seen.
