The Lost Child

thelostchildbyjoelf The sound of a scream as she opened her eyes. The movement of the ground was instantly felt. The place is too dark as she grasped for the light.  A lost child suddenly appears in the dead of the night.

She asked what happened? Why they are all alone, no neighbors to ask, no  one  to hold. The child speaks  saying he can’t believe , the moment he woke up, he’s walking alone.

She asked his name and he said he is john, she nods and say “Don’t worry i will  bring you back home.” The boy replied  “you are my home.”

Confused by the words but the tears in his eyes, gave her a message she can’t deny,  as the  boy  hold her hand and showed her wrists, the blood is gushing, from the cut she didn’t miss,

It is only then that  she felt the pain when the child start saying ” I asked HIM to make me, a part of this world, but how can it be , if my mom isn’t home”

Years had passed as she speaks on the floor, to all those who are lost and almost took their own course. She found the truth that life is a cord that binds  not one , but all.  As she leaves the hallway, she was greeted by a friend , who gave his gift for her son John’s first birthday.  -by JoelF
