Little Soldiers

Facing an enemy three times our size.
We go to battle alone with no guns for protection.
Our fists are tiny.
We are powerless against a large man.
We endure the tormenting agonizing acts of adults
bent on controlling us for their passion.
We cannot speak
because little soldiers have no voice.  


These poems .. have a pulse, a rhythm that takes them beyond the chopped-up prose that is often presented as poetry. The content, especially in the family section,Is often painful but it’s presented in a tough-minded way that is never cloying or maudlin.
