asleep and sucking her thumb;

asleep and sucking her thumb
poor little child
far too small for the bed
so large in comparison
despite brightly colored blankets.

tubes and wires abound
attached here and there
little machines that make sounds
somewhat oddly comforting.

this shouldn't happen
it is surreal and unnatural
it goes against nature.

but all we can do is hope
and pray, and wish fervently
for the end of such strife.
