Stolen Innocence


I trusted you to help me.
Two innocent lives are at stake.
I trusted in you to shelter them,
From any of the wrongs that I make.

Two innocent lives.
This wasn't in their plans.
You should have been caring about their lives and what they want,
As if you were holding your own heart in your hands.

Would you let it fall?
Would you let it die.?
Why punish these children,
When its 'MOMMY' they cry?

You claim its me and my family,
Who scare them half to death.
But if you take the time and look closely
My children, my family, and I ALL share the same flesh

They get to see their father
Someone who comes around only when HE wants
HE gets to take them anywhere and everywhere.
HE gets the time and the opportunity to flaunt

I AM THEIR MOTHER!
And it seems you're trying to make them forget
YOU carrying for them, out of MY BEST INTENTIONS
Is now something I GREATLY REGRET! !

    I think and suspect what this is about, I have know children of my own but I remember as a boy growing up the difficulty it was for my single parent mom to raise me on her own, and she was a great women, Innocence can be stolen, but redemption and hope can bring something greater - enlightenment.
