Children of Pain

Children of Pain

Children should be born to be loved not destroyed
To parents that are full of compassion and enjoy,
Just what raising a family could bring
Their childhoods will reflect how they turn out to be
Children should not be deprived from a smile
They need to be praised and feel like they are worthwhile
Some children are often left feeling abandoned and confused
Left alone neglected and abused
These are the Children of Pain
The tears in their eyes are just a sign for us to see
That they are in a world where it is so unhappy
Social workers visit homes day to day
While so many time abusive parents know just what to say
Convincing the social worker he fell off a swing
She walked away and didn’t solve anything
So many children are being killed year after year
It’s always in the news for it’s happening everywhere
These are the Children of Pain
If you look closely into a child’s eyes
You will see a place where the truth really lies
A child’s tears will always stand out through the rain
Don’t walk away form the Children of Pain

    I work with these kids. Some horror stories. Edit last line (from). Liberal judges make it almost impossible to stop until the kid's self esteem is destroyed and there has been multiple complaints over a period of years.
