The mind of a child is no man’s land

The mind of a child is no man’s land

Whose geography is shaped by the forces of our hands


Invaded by fear

Cowering in trauma

Flooded with tears

Crying for mama


Lifted in joy

Discovering a new toy

The curve of that smile

Extends for a mile


Laughter escapes in his sleep

At a memory he chose to keep

That plot of land has found its claimant

A home for the new inhabitant


Thrashing and screaming as he rests

Rejection and unfulfilled need have come to protest

Another piece of land secured

An unwelcome guest to be endured


The mind of a child is no man’s land

Whose geography is shaped by the forces of our hand

The inhabitants have come to stay

At the invitation of what we do in the day
