The Child Soldier

new dawn
for the former child soldier
cherry blossoms

swords
into ploughshares
love molecules drop like honey

a taste
of life in the food chain
anxiety rules

child soldier on edge
let the
healing begin

inner peace
a night without the sound
of sputtering guns

the child
soldier in mufti
evening cool

a passing shower…
tears
of the child soldier

lucid dream
i rescue the child soldier
in the nick of time
