child soldiers




They march unseen these soldiers
invisable to the mass
for they are the families and friends
of each warrior lad and lass

they are the homebound troops
that smile with eyes of fear
less they shall be the recipient
of news no one should hear

they march unseen these soldiers
their only weapon... prayer
lighting a candle of hope
for each loved one over there

these are the the unseen soldiers
heartbreak hidden to the mass
carried alone by families and friends
of each warrior lad and lass
