PAWNS

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

 

We were pawns

the little pieces

in a fight

between opponents

Mom and Dad

 

Stranded in the middle

pulled in both directions

unable to move

afraid to choose

surrounded on a battle line

running through my heart

 

Pawns

little pieces

in a war

that was never won
