A Mothers Fear.


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.

    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

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
