A Child’s Surrender

A child surrenders

A four year old from Syria

Knows war

Knows fear

Her eyes look for solace

She cannot find

Her tiny hands balled into a fist

Up in the air

In front of a camera she believes a gun

Remember her

May her gaze follow your dreams

And when you hate

And wish to hurt back

Remember her

And all the ones

We cannot see

    Laura, iIf only the ones who do harm could somehow think the way you think, then maybe the world would finally know peace.
