You are not the tears you shed

At the loss of childhood dreams

You are not the pain that led

To the sound of piercing screams


You are not the reason why

You had to face the world alone

You’re not the words they let fly

And turned your heart to stone


I know it is hard to comprehend

A future full and bright

But Just reach out and take his hand

And God will make it right

  1. Jerry, you do write poetry beautiful. This time you take up a very traumatic subject. Many in this situation are scarred in the heart for life.
    Loving family, friend and confidence in your own ability to build, create and take your place in society will help.

    My heart goes out to all who suffered
