Lil sister spins round in circles
oblivious to her public surroundings.
She is alive in the moment
embracing all that she perceives with open arms.
For now, she revels in her innocence.
Her sweet little light radiates and it is infectious.
She is completely unaware of the dangers
that await her growing up as a commodity
in a world wrought with exploitation ,
gender inequality and isms innumerable.
For now, big sister watches, directs, and looks out for
little sister… she is safe and protected in the womb of family…
