Innocent Child
 
By Janice Marie



Today I remembered
An innocent child
This little ones loving eyes
Looked up to all with complete honesty
I wondered in my heart and mind
What did this little child really see
Did she see grownups who cared
And loved her very much
This small child who stretched
Her arms up in complete trust

Do grownups really know or care
That when they say cruel words
And scream and shout
That the innocent child looks
At them and doesn’t know what
They are screaming and shouting about

A small child doesn’t truly understand
When they say that they have had a bad day
That small child just wants to be held
Wants to be with them and play
Or that their jobs have made them angry
And they don’t want to be bothered today

If everyone remembered back
When they were children
How much happier this world would be
Because all the things
That were done to them when they were small
Would never be done to their children at all
