    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.

    Miss K-ness

    I am ALWAYS moved by your consciousness and compassion for our babies...and, they really are all ours, if we claim to be 'family'.

    Feeling your hue....

    thank you

    i was inspired to write this piece
    as i read the book "PUSH" by sapphire...
    so this story is not my own but
    my heart goes out to the ones
    who can't fight for themselves because
    they're too little and not stronger
    than the adults above them...
    thank you for your words!
