Answer The Teary Orphan


Upon killing my family
Did you ever consider the pain you left him with?
Hardly think of the dreams she had?
Did concious blow enough to burn away the cruelty?

Upon killing my family
Did you plan to replace the love?
Or by any chance intend to provide
Life for her to live?
Upon killing her family
Did you plan to her food and education?
Answer the orphan!

    I am a mother, I feel pain for each child left without a hand and a heart to be cared for. Somehow I feel responsible too. I am sure if I dig deep, faults of myself I shall meet: milliard things not done, ignored, maybe some could bring bits of peace, love and smiles...
    Great write, made me aware, thank you for share. (Report) Reply
