In the Childrens Heart ........

He sits silently yearning at the back of the room
already judged ....is six really too old
And she ..... waiting in silence ....Never
quite accepted ....no one to hold

He wants so badly to tell what happens
in the dark of his room at night
It doesn't seem that its a good
thing .....somethings not right......

She offers her doll to another
girl just to have a friend
She would surely give it all
if the cruel cycles would just end

Yesterday a six year old boy unidentified
in a ditch did they find
His mother....... charged with his death
Just what was his crime

The teacher watches her play
at recess and wonders .....will she tell
As he keeps her after class....To
teach her a new kind of hell

The greateast crimes against the child
inflicted by grownups it seems
When ...once....we gave them life
we taught them how to dream

Now the boy in the ditch with
no life ....wrapped in a blue tarp
And the girl.......a toybox full of
nightmares......a broken heart


And some say .......we don't need punishment ....no jails , no penalties......while the perpetrators move on to teach at another school........and murdering mothers.......get the best defence that tax money can buy.......makes you wonder .....who are we?

A really sad story...that poor little boy. I just shake my head, I can't comprehend a parent actually murdering their child.

Hi Susan , when I saw the picture of this boy in the news , I knew right away it was probably family related, And now his mother is being held for suspicion of killing him. When does this madness end. I get angry at something like this. And now the "system "takes over! Plea bargains and reduced charges.....on and on. I hope you are well , its nice to see you.

Paradise , what do you say you and I become a hit team , taking out these perpetrators of pain! We could do it. Seriously, it makes me sick to my stomach to see these abuses. I hope you are having a little sunshine over there today. :-}

It is indeed sad to think that not only that little boy was murdered but right now another child, somewhere in this world, is suffering in the hands of dark minds. I came across an article where a mother placed her baby in the microwave, and I couldn't read it, just saw the caption, that was enough for me! The world is indeed in need of love and healing. I sometimes send intentions of love and peace to the world and hope it reaches the darkest places in our planet, places where even the best of activists cannot reach.

I am also going to tweet this hub!

Violetsun , I wish that all hearts were as gentle and as rock steady as you'res Marie. What defines the degree of violence today ? Chemicals of drug abuse? Some twisted hardwiring in the brain? The prehistoric abuse of alcohol? I don't get it . But I know the heart can change , and until it does we will never be free of such abuse. Thank god for souls like yours! Be well.

Just makes you cry, thinking of all the suffering. Children should not have to experience fear! Individual's can make a difference, in this world. Keep speaking your mind! These horror's need to be exposed to the world, not swept under the carpet. These so called adults, should suffer the way these poor children have. Breaks my heart - keep up the good work mate.

Awesome and up

Cheers skellie

This is great dad. Parents need to have a more open dialogue with their children. There are obvious signs of abuse that are overlooked or ignored. Too, I would like to mention that if we in the community see the signs, all it takes is a phone call. The silence or the old" sweep it under the rug" approach needs to end today...love and hugs always

An eye-opener, this one.It's so sad why these things happen to defenseless children who had no idea of the harm that would befall them-in the hands of people who were supposed to love and protect them.Thank's for sharing. God bless.
