When you hurt a little child,
You will take from him something he can never get back.
In his heart you have forever filed,
Something horrible, and very black.
To raise your hand to someone so innocent,
Is the cruelest thing a person can do.
He’ll face a life of imprisonment,
I don’t think you really have a clue.
The chance that you pass on this legacy,
Which might make him do it to his own child too,
And turn him into a felony,
If only you really knew.
You don’t have to hit a child for it to be abuse,
Name calling and put downs are just as bad.
There can never be a good enough excuse,
When it’s happening by his Mom or Dad.
So if your abusing your son or daughter,
Ask yourself if this is the what you want to pass along,
To your grandson or granddaughter?
You need to see now that what you’re doing is so very wrong.
