1 Corinthians 8:9 New King James Version (NKJV)
9 But beware lest somehow this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak.
Hall’s of failures
Two children are dying ... both beyond repair?
One physically handicapped ... one mentally desperate
Two parents “living” ... that seems quite fair
Both trapped however ... in ways of deliberate
Not knowing how to give ... a path of detrimental
With two hearts spinning ... without any defense
One hanging on to life ... and one suicidal
Where is the beginning ... where is the end?
Darkness settled long ago ... absence of light
Nightmares of yesterday ... clawing in the presence
Artificial goals ... pressing with all might
Someone has to pay ... to whom is the message?
Responsibility is one’s own ... here no exceptions
“The devil made me do it” ... no more excuse
But what if the parents ... led to this frustration
Not easy to prove this ... premeditated child’s abuse
What if parents dress in fake ... although appearing well?
Children peek through facades ... this is a gift of God
When religion is a flake ... children can tell
this hypocritical promenade ... where truth resides not
The easiest to punish ... are children for my guilt
They cannot defend themselves ... when they are very young
Instead for them to flourish ... the preciousness gets spilled
until they can’t mend ... all the damage that is done
