this poem won't rhyme today
no
it will not rhyme
for this poem sees a dark gray
sadness
of how it can always be worse...
i cannot rhyme the woes of our poor babies
misguided, misled, mishandled
abused
neglected
raped
abducted
unkempt
we are supposed to just love them and
raise them and feed them and clothe
them and brush their teeth and teach
them to SING OUT LOUD and teach
them a b c d e f g... 1 2 3 4 5 6 7...
and show them who God is
and how to to talk to Him and
watch them ever so closely with
loving eyes...
this poem is for the babies who have
fallen through the cracks
forgotten by society
or
the poor children that we THINK
are okay
OPEN your EYES and see them
find them save them love them
pray...
until the gray gives way to the sun.
