evil vs. good - a child waits

loathing, hating, piercing darts
caring, loving uplifting hearts

ugly greed’s, degenerate behaving
beautiful deeds, gracious saving

manipulative words, innocence ravaged
kind words, innocence cherished

shattered angelic stripped shameless bare
adored little angel draped in satin fare

slapped faces, beaten bruised mouths
kissed faces, softly caressed brows

tirelessly tortured, raping woes
tickled to laughing, guarding souls

dissecting spirits, minds altered to weakness
cleansing spirits, minds strengthened with sweetness

horror unchained, ravenous disgraces
peace proclaimed, soothing embraces

starving in darkness, thrust not repairable
feeding in light, comfort unconditional

numb cold infractions, despondent left dying
heart felt actions, joyously found sighing

to hell with you evil, die in your darkness
you of love and grace, shine in your goodness

evil vs. good - a child waits by 

What I have written is simply my reaction, a
reaction to a pure evil that I so strongly loath
like none other in this world. I also wrote of
goodness, that which is so much stronger
and should be sought after…for all children.
I just pray that it would cause you to become proactive for the sake of love and goodness,
for the sake of a child.

There are innocent children everyday who face
and succumb to this evil….it breaks my heart.
For them…cry.

Just a guy who loves to write; poetry, lyrics, short stories and random thoughts… it is my passion. Photography is my second passion as I love to capture the world around me… to make time stop and to savor a subject forever.

    Rog, the melding of the two is like a mirror of evil and good…It helps with the message.

    This is an evil that is loathesome. As a father, as a man and as a human being and as a child…I despise what some children are subjected to. There are those that do not survive and those that do, but those that do never really get back what was taken. I hope people read and understand that the world can be harsh for our small treasures and we must protect them and fight against the monsters that lurk around us. I am wiping a tear for them. Awareness is a weapon against cruelty. Thanks

  • Thanks Paul – like I asked Sally, please spread the word…not for me…for children in the world.

    I almost don;t know what to say. This is incredible. A true voice in a silent room. The balance this poem has is perfect. The contrast of good and evil. You hit a home run!! It’s sad but uplifting, desperate but inspires hope. Cheers!
