they say

kids are resilient

they say

give them time

& they will get over it

& this they want to believe

not for the kids you understand

but for themselves

otherwise they would need to do more

& the kids themselves understand

learn that they must shut up

grow hard skin over the wound

pretend all is ok

& just like all the other wounded soldiers

our burying ground

is internal
