My apologies to all that come by to read, for time of late, to me has been a thief.
Though I read of you all...all I can, I feel guilty that I haven't said of this grand.
I sincerely apologize to all.


Oh Suffer The Little Children



 Her children cry alone in the darkness of a singular forgotten time,

Where hardships and lessons are learned

and secrets are kept in the recesses of their mind.

Few in the land… if any even feign care,

Where haughty insolence is prevalent

And shame blows freely on black winds of despair.

Pity it is, oh testament to the times

with sorrowful children corrupted by deviant minds.

I feel in heart of this sting,

I cringe of the injustice, which justice fails to bring.

For my words are but mere whispers

Which spill forth into a silent slow leak

My voice hath no power, as my lips fail to speak.

For her children stand alone and cry out for a moral justice,

They cry on false hopes that only no hope can bring.

Oh suffer the little children

In a land where corruption, and dishonor is king.

How beautifully written is this indictment of our present society!
I want to hang my head in shame for what they allow people to get away with in this country concerning children. It sickens me!
Great write Allen!

Never apologize, Al, we all have lives to lead so when I get to see or hear from you, no matter the amount of time in between, I am happy for that moment...this is such a said statement of our society today...I hate to see children suffer in anyway, wish I could replace their suffering with happiness & mirth...Find Peace dear friend, Ed & Rufuz

Oh suffer the little children
In a land where corruption, and dishonor is king.

It truly is a far too sad and tragic aspect of life that the children are always the ones who suffer the most.

Reviewed by Felix Perry 6/15/2005
Little whispers when multiplied a thousand fold by others can become a large roar, it is time for all of us to start speaking out and end the suffering of the little children. Well said my friend.
