The innocence of a child

The innocence of a child

The innocence of a child, no hatred or divisions just free and wild. But us adults who are meant to protect love and care, we darken their dreams frighten and scare. The most evil adults of them all, sexual predators and child killers taking our children they die and fall. For their own adult needs they abuse harm and scare, our beautiful children dieing as blood runs through the fairest hair. The war's the famine it leaves it's scar, the children that are buried and maimed it's the worst by far. Children alone wandering the streets, dirt on their face tangled hair and pleats. Just looking for someone to show that they care, but evil waits in the shadows waiting to pounce take them to its lair. Us adults who walk on by, not knowing if that child will suffer tonight or die. Let's stop us adults stop what we're doin, by turning a blind eye who are we foolin. So I beg to ask every adult out there, stop and check show a child you care. Protect them help them show them the way, in which adults lay down their arms and hatred and give a helpless child one amazing day.
