Tiny Dreams

Blisters on their feet
Sweet smiles piercing through 
They tap on the window sill
Tiny shoes in their hands,
They beg. 
For their tiny dreams to be lived.

  7. It's a sad picture and the kids are sometimes heartbreakingly tiny. But I can never quite decide my stand on the issue of begging.
