    visiting
    eyes
    invade
    lives

    like a
    famished animal
    he
    watched
    with an earnest stare
    as
    she...
    barely three
    played with her toys
    on the living room floor
    left
    by her mother
    a
    window
    was all he needed
    to playfully gallop her
    on his knee

    within…

    a
    half hour
    her innocence was
    devoured

    Far to much invasion being passed to our babies, the madness must stop, sometimes the effect is a life-long memory.
    thanks for sharing sis.

    Sister Coco, this gave me chills!


    Truly, more care has to be taken with our children.


    You perfectly narrated a story here....a horror story...all too real.

    Today I heard another innocence was stolen by a predator.
    The reports seem more frequent. We mothers need to be more watchful
    for visiting eyes that seek to invade lives. Such reports are always sad
    and disturbing to me. Children are to be loved and protected, not left to
    the mercy of wolves that are sometimes invited into the homes by their parent(s)

    Anywho…

    Thanks QueenT and CherryB for feeling me.
