The child’s voice,
Thin and tiny,
Screaming for a attention,
Expressing inner discomfort,
Making known its fears,
Of things unfamiliar

In the absence of the mother,
In the presence of gigantic adults,
Seeing unfriendly little children,
Staring at his chocolate,
He wants to be carried and curdled
To feel safe in the mother’s warm arms.

He cried the more,
“Mummy, mummy, mummy,”
His voice grew louder,
Thicker and thunderous
Calling for attention,
But no one seems to understand,
The expression, the voice of the child.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

The child needs all the attention it can get. Give it to it.
