Robbed Childhood

Robbed Childhood

I understand robbery

And lives flexed from a good reality

A rubbery existence

A hollow place leaving difficulty to stand

Children deserve the very best

Of what a parent can give

A reality ground in loving communion

A life that healthy parents together planned

Children don’t deserve dysfunction

And being the canvas for a sick parent’s distorted views

They don’t deserve to be robbed of their childhood

This is the worst way a child can be abused

Children deserve their innocence

It shouldn’t be envied by hearts eaten through with bitterness

The innocence should be treasured through and through

Children don’t deserve this treasure ripped away

They don’t deserve their innocence taken

By someone who once had theirs ripped away from them too

Perpetuating misery only leads to more misery

Children deserve a life free from misery and pain

They deserve a life of health and soundness of mind

They don’t deserve to dwell in darkness because a parent has lost their light

They don’t deserve a robbed childhood because of blinded existence

This kind of harm to a child is the very worst of its kind

Children are truly the future

A future adult of what is given to them as a youth

Or a future adult of what has been robbed of them from being a kid

Children deserve the very best of what a parent can give

They don’t deserve this only moment, their childhood, robbed from them

They deserve to know their parents love, that their parents very best was what they did
