A child in the corner

This is a short poem I wrote that describes a child crouched in a corner–helpless, in pain and unable to influence change on the situation in front of him.

It is written based on a recollection of my past memories.

‘A child in the corner’

A little child suffocates in a solitary corner,


Papa and Mama enraged, he is but


get me out of here he

whispers : 1

count, two counts. three &



Crisp slaps

Slice the tense moist air into

razor thin

    • Hi PreciousRhymes,

      It moved your heart to tears? That is lovely to hear because just today, I was praying that hopefully, my writing would move the hearts of others and some sort of good/thought-provoking,etc, might come out of it:) Because, I really want to write for a purpose. So, what you said really made my day!

      Thank you so much and please continue expressing your heart out on your blog because your words are laden with a sincerity that is so very refreshing!

      Looking forward to reading more of your works!!

      God bless you too:)
