Little People - Poem by Kristina Louisa Carr

Have you ever noticed when looking into a baby's eyes
The child seems to know more than you and is wise
At times I wonder if they remember life of a previous time
And know all downfalls of our world and every crime
I wish that I could be exited for the life they will explore
But in reality I rather hide and close my door
I wish I can protect all from indifference and neglect
To preserve the innocence no one has damaged yet

What could I say to prepare them for life
Without gutting the truth with a very sharp knife
Should I be honest about all evil and pain
Or let them go into reality taking later the blame
I hope they will have loyal friends one day and thrive
Without thinking a cliff may be the answer and dive
I want to create a wall of protection around every black hole
And build a 10 foot fence of barb wire around their soul

Have you ever noticed the wishes for a new born child
All carefully selected and plentiful compiled
Right there not one person feels sorrow and is afraid
For all the other little people growing up in the shade
I want to collect and protect the ones that are already here
But no matter how loud I shout it - people just overhear
So my message is to you right now, and today
Save the ones we already have - without second thought and betray
