What about the Children? (Sensitive
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By J. Mollett
Other Poems by J. Mollett


What about the children?
People are more worried about Abortions,
there's something everyone has forgotten.
It's on the news just about everyday or
the papers, maybe in your neighborhood.
Children in their own homes, whether both
parents are in the family or not. To think
that one or both of the parents could or
would abuse, sexually or beat their own
children. Just turns my stomach. I get so
frustrated, so angry when I hear that it's
happened again. It's not the child's fault,
they shouldn't blame themselves.

What about the children?
This happens more often, than it's reported.
The children are taken away, yet they send
them back home. And the child turns up dead
sooner or later. Some parents don't watch
their kids close enough, someone kidnaps
them.

What about the children?
There are some that could care less
what their kids are doing. If the parents
don't want the children, let someone adopt
them. At least they will feel wanted, loved,
alive. Then you wonder why children are so
rude, cruel, mean and get into trouble so
much. Give them the chance to live, spread
their wings, make something of themselves.
What's happening to the children in their
own homes, is worst than abortions.
Which is worse???

2003 (c) What About The Children? (Sensitive, Abuse, etc.)
By Jean M Gutermuth

Author's Note: I heard a song on
Worship, Called: What About The Children?
Then I added the rest on it. It's a sad,
but beautiful song. Abuse shouldn't happen
to anyone, whether a child or adult. They
certainly don't deserve it.
