Way too much power

Way 
too 
much 
power 
stacked 
up on 
the 
shelf,almost 
as much 
power 
as the 
Lord 
God 
himself,    
No 
room 
for 
human 
error,no 
room 
for 
mistake,with 
a long 
list of 
families 
and 
hearts 
they did 
break,                      
Who's 
was the 
decision?
who 
deemed 
it 
correct?
it's a 
fine line 
between 
nurture 
and 
neglect,         
Misinterpretation 
is just 
no 
excuse,is 
it child 
protection?
or 
maybe 
child 
abuse.As 
you 
gather 
the 
details 
each in 
its own 
place,have 
you got 
all the 
facts 
right to 
build up 
your 
case?                    
Was it 
normal 
chastising 
or harsh 
push 
and 
shove?
as you 
remove 
these 
kids 
from 
the 
families 
they 
love,                   
And the 
homes 
that are 
broken 
get 
tossed 
on the 
pile,as 
the kid 
with no 
mummy 
forgets 
how to 
smile,                 
And the 
powers 
that be 
sit 
deciding 
our 
fate,and 
there's 
no 
words 
of 
wisdom 
that can 
compensate,                         
So 
where 
lies the 
answer 
to 
whom 
love 
deprives,given 
way too 
much 
power 
to play 
God 
with 
kids 
lives.

    Interesting lines penned..Enjoyed reading today..Sometimes it is best for the child to be with their parents and sometimes it is best for them to be in protective custody .Each situation is different..Sara
