Dust Bunnies

Some places exist which folks need to clean,
like deep in a closet or under a bed.
Such spots get ignored because they’re unseen.
Those in plain view get attention instead!

Some children exist we choose to ignore,
for they are not ours. They live out of sight.
Unwanted, unloved, and rarely cared for;
some rich, others poor - they share the same plight.

Their life is a darkness where they’ve been thrown.
They are gathering dust; no voice have they.
Their sorrows are only to God fully known -
these dust bunnies, growing more filthy each day.

They are the future, and in a short time
they will have become society’s grime.

For the Gathering Dust poetry Contest of John Lawless

    So true Andrea, and the whole world turns their back on them. Then when some of them turn to crime, we blame them.. Enjoyed your poem,my friend. Hope it is a win for you....Peter

    Much anguish here . . . seeing the cycle but feeling helpless to make changes . . . but awareness is a beginning . . . not more money, more programs, more stuff . . . but love and attention. Well done my dearest friend. . . deep is your love for children which is part of your calling each day!! Much love and light. 7

    Great comparison Andrea...I used to see it all the time when I coached the younger kids in baseball then softball...Many of the parents where behind their kids 100% but others would just drop them off at practices or games...come pick them up is very disheartening...I tried to give them a little extra attention...joke around...make it a fun experience...we never know what is going on at home
