A Cruel Fact

A childs innocent eyes should never know this place.
Blood stains the soul.
News reports flash another soon to be lost face.

She was just heading home unsuspecting  of the danger.
In a world she should not know.
The veil of innocence shattred  many will be affected by 
the sick act of a stranger.

broken is the body tossed like rag doll into the
trash alone in her cries.
Taken so many with her as the innocent dies.

The evening news plays a mothers plea.
Hope is all they cling to as time does pass.
Prayers asked of many but it's outta the 
hands of you and me.

What is a story on the evening news  is a life 
stolen  from the hearts many held dear.
To know this pain is beyond understanding
it exist's on the edge of hell in the constant season 
known as fear.

A perfect innocent face.
Should never exist apon posters.
Missing to only eternally haunt the 
memories space.

Do monsters exist young fearful eye's ask seeking 
protection  as helpless  to  answer the question. 
you havent a clue.
And with eyes cast with regret.
The parent with a heavy heart most reply
yes they do.

    as you express, a child should never know the real fears of this this world, sometimes they are protected, but then there are those people, or things in their life that break in and destroy from time to time, and the protector of this child trys so hard to stop it, or them when they do.even so, it will still torment the child.but then there are those children who have no protection at all, its always a miracle to know they make it, nothing they do is wrong. -Always&Forever Lynette

    The most scary truth is that the monster is not the deformed, scarred face man or woman living in the old run down house at the end of town. Instead, the monster is like any normal person living next door, living in your house,driving a fancy car-just everyday people! That is scary! Very good piece of work! Sad but true! Peace and love, audrey

    So powerfull and such a sad reality to know that monsters do exist. The greatest fear of a parent is to lose their child but even worse to lose them to a monster...

    This recent event was horrible. I don't even like watching the news because of all the bad that is taking place in the world. You have done a good job of putting it to words in the form of a poem. Keep writing. Sara
