Don'T Make Your Children Bare Your Crucifix.

Don’t make your children bare your crucifix. Children won’t forget and can’t fix. Children born in such a big world having to fight, The only friend they have is a closet where they hide at night. The day a mother married him a child died. Memories of a childhood left behind. An innocence that died inside. Survivor of abuse passing on what’s defied. Don’t make your children bare your crucifix. Children won’t forget and can’t fix. Children born in such a big world having to fight, Parents treat your children right. Don’t beat each other up tonight. Children shouldn’t live in terror or be a cross-barer. Don’t turn you children into a lifeless shell Doomed to live here in hell. Parents see your children hurt. Parents see what innocence like that’s worth. Don’t make your children bare your crucifix. Children won’t forget and can’t fix. Children born in such a big world having to fight, Letting them live should be more than a right. Jesus bared that crucifix So our children’s faith wouldn’t inter-mix. God put his child on the cross So our children wouldn’t have to feel the cost. He took the tears and pain So our children wouldn’t have to sustain. He loves all little children its true But that doesn’t mean he loves them for you. Blessings and gifts you never knew, Parents you still have a job to do. So before you give you children a reason to run and hide Remember why Jesus was the one crucified.
