Musings - Why Is It That The Innocents Will Suffer - Poem by Paul Warren

The bitterness I feel is sometimes raw
Of the things I've seen sticking in my craw
Why is it that the innocents will suffer
Whilst sometimes the evil one will recover

Children who haven't yet made their mark
Live with broken dreams without love at the start
Or the broken lives whose time slips away
When it could be prevented in a common sense display

In my mind on reflection it still is so real
It's the horror in my memory that I have to deal
And it is not always the blood and the gore
It's when you leave children knowing they need more.
