tiny casket…written by Toni L.A. Cross 3/8/10


Date of birth: November 2, 2009

such a tiny, tiny casket
little face
with an expression of life
painted on it
its enough to break
a heart of stone
hands so small
lifeless perfect shell
delicate lips
that should be moving
tiny chest
not rising and falling
take me away
from this place
before I freeze inside

My name is Toni Clegg, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
