Dream for a child…

The hope in her child’s dreams

she sinks deep into emotions of despair

her fainting hope fading with invisible air

her heart grieves as she perceives

she bleeds her tears into an empty bowl

she cries her prayers to an open sky

a deaf god

her pleasure is soaked in a river of pain

her eyes, her shame

covered with sympathetic blankets of public pity

she weaves her comfort fabric with fantasy threads

she hangs her child’s dreams on a thin swing string

yet she hopes for a good life for this child
