The little boy.

by hangonz92

A little boy fell on to the Earth.

Out of the sky he dropped like a bird from a nest

and thus proclaimed his love for all things

as everything to his eyes was new.

Across rivers he swam

and through deserts he trekked

with swollen feet and bloodied hands.

Finally he came across one like him.

A body with arms and legs

and a head like a balloon sat atop them.

Through his travels the little boy had grown to be as tall

and as he approached his fellow man

with his burly beard and bloodied arms outstretched,

the man turned away, repulsed, and quickly fled.

The boy began to cry.

Tears which did not fall

but returned to the sky from which he came

and soon his torn and ravaged body along with them.
