Suffer the Little Children

Written by: Kim Hilliker

Suffer the little children that hide their pain
For these innocent victims, who’s to blame?

Although many a tragedy happen at home
Society, itself, inflicts harsh pains of its own

Danger and violence are a part of everyday
And, the children know it shouldn’t be that way

The remain fearful in living with all they endure
Safety and security, they never know for sure

Clinging to anything showing an open arm
They barely survive using sheer wit and charm

Restitutional change is imperative somehow
Our children need salvation, and they need it now

Accepting responsibility is where all must begin
To partake in the marking of suffering’s end.
