Face In The Water

written by: Cindy Medina



Young one, serene and pretty,
violently thrust into Death's arms,
smooth babyish features grossly
framed by murky waters, sun-
kissed flesh seems dissolving
into fetid pond. Sweet, innocent
visage - so like a Buddha's!

If only your killers had noticed.



A murdered child, perhaps 7 years old, in a pond. This child purportedly of the Rohingya people in Myanmar. Child allegedly killed in ethnic violence. Taking a little-known relief agency's word for it (I can offer no proof).
