The Tiny Ones – Written Sunday 18th July 2003 (Aged 28)

The Tiny Ones

all about the babies
the tiny ones
with tiny hands
and tiny toes
how they hold on
and never let go
the unconditional love they give
it is not something,
they slowly make
it is born with them
and yet,
still some only take
still some will steal
from what these babies give
how these tiny ones must feel
these people who abuse everything
they leave us without words
what can we say to describe them
it’s all about the small ones
who arrive without fault
just giving to someone
just trainee adults
all about the babies
