Condotti Child

They have names
For him and opinions
About him


He expects no more
Than the unwanted change
Of our excess

A cigarette to quell
The madness of addiction

Surprised that he is loved
The more in deprivation

A child of God
His song finds a hearing
In Heaven and in me

A voice deeply lived in
Beyond his years

May he be blessed
More deeply still
As I in him am blessed
