The children suffer

autumn

A little boy in shock.
Covered in blood and dust.
The young become victims.
In war monsters exist.

A toddler left to die.
In a box by the roadside.
A victim of child abuse?
In peace monsters exist.

A decomposed body of a boy.
From missing to a kidnapping.
A child has died.
And the monster lives on.

I read their stories.
I saw their faces.
Three little boys.
Is prayer enough?
