Bless The Children
After reading a hub on child abuse. I was invited to write on it and came up with a longer version of my original poem. Here is my original comment and the poem.
Wow, this was so hard to read, the truth hurts so much sometimes, the loss of innocence and trust is horrifying at the very least. thanks for opening up this ugly can of worms. It always brings to my mind an IF,
If there was no hurt
If there was no pain
If only only the world would be soft
like the sound of falling rain.
Bless the children , oh Lord, Bless the children
Child abuse.. it is so wrong
a sad, sad tale, a forlorn song
who does hear the children's plea?
will any one... please... listen to me
to stop the madness of chid abuse
parents.... listen to reason
don't say there is no use.
this night mare must stop .
My Lord... hear our plea's
Bless the children, My Lord
and take care of their needs.
The loss of innocence is the worst
let's put all of the children first
Bless the Children, Lord Bless the Children.
