Ode to Child Soldiers















Ode to Child Soldiers

If he were your son
your brother, your nephew
your grandson

would you turn a blind eye
and hope that "it will all work out in the end"?
as the visions of what he's forced to do
made to do
taught to do
keep him awake at night
and make him delirious during the day

If he were your son
your cousin, your friend
your own

would you hope he'd forget
the "skills" of murder
rape and crime he's been made never to forget

would you pray it away
think it away
brush it off
if he were your own?

What would you do?
or most importantly What Would Jesus Do?
