A Mothers Fear. - Poem by Graham Jones

Children in the playground
Children in the park
Never leave a child alone
To wander in the dark

The world is full of demons
Some real some make believe
That wear the cloak of decency
Like a weapon to deceive

Predators that stalk the land
Their hearts and souls defiled
To destroy the face of innocence
Of one that is a child.

    Wonderful advice and yes a Mother's greatest fear.

    Important message, but beware the ones who harm children in broad daylight in places we consider safe - I know. Experts say these monsters can't be reformed. Where children are, so are these 'people': working and waiting. (Report) Reply

    This is not just a mother's fear, Graham, it's the fear of fathers, siblings, grandparents, cousins, aunties, uncles and all other decent human beings. It's also a despicable shame. With warmth, Gina. (Report) Reply
