Cambodia
Through Harold’s Lens:

What does this little boy know?
Pain?
Hunger?
Sadness?

Terror?
Safety?
Loneliness?

Misery?
Ridicule?
Rejection?

Death?
Failure?
The unknown?

What does this little boy miss?
Mommy?
Daddy?
Brother?
Sister?

Friend?
Food?
Love?

Hugs?
Happiness?
Holding hands?

Silliness?
Goofiness?
Laughter?

Little boy
Stumbling
War-torn concrete jungles
Kicking stones
Kicking dust
Flicking bugs.

Cry from his deep?

One only
Speaks Cambodian
One only
Speaks English.

I’ll never know.
