This expresses my feeling toward an utterly intolerable crime that goes beyond the bounds of human decency. The crime kills off the innocence and aliveness of children who grow to suffer throughout adulthood.

Child playing in a sandbox
A sunny, cool spring day
Pure aliveness
A miracle of god

A black ominous shadow
Abruptly rips up the child
Thoughtlessly ravaging
Tearing life from innocence

Inflicting bewilderment
Pain guilt and confusion
A child’s soul dies
Four year old remains

Tears in the sandbox
Inner death of the child
A childhood stolen
Aliveness nevermore

-Glenn Baxter
