Children Have the Power

Children dance, sing a song
of glory, rights, and vision.
Simple spell that grows
and ripples from brother
to sister. They keep the site
of the towers in their sight.
Spirals of smoke, rats scurrying,
black crows cawing, but children
have the power for change,
they say. They are not yet
broken, should not have to pay
with pallid futures. They must
have the chance to sleep soundly
in their beds, bellies full,
peace not a myth.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
