Martym,

There is too much emotion inside of me. I cannot put it into words. Just know that this poem touched me very deeply.

Love ya

Darrel

Martym, Is there any one of us who doesn't say a silent prayer for every little boy he sees? Your poem says it all for me. Bobby

Martym,

sometimes the best poems are written adhoc.
It is very touching, and how many of us has said these prayers over and over again,

It's wonderful. I see in it a sense of compassion for another, that they may not have to experience the hurt we all had. And it calls on God to intervene.

Martym,

That is an awesome poem. So much depth in so few words. I wish that non-abused people could get an inkling of the emotion in that poem. I wonder at times if it's possible.

Thank-you for posting it.

Lots of love,

John

Martym,

I don't think Darrel means you hurt him with your poem; rather, he was just so moved by it, as am I. I still find that when I see a boy about 11 years old I immediately and automatically wonder if he's safe.

The problem is that many of the kids we see AREN'T safe. But which ones?

This is the terrible tragedy that your poem captures so poignantly: the silent terrible suffering of children in a world that cannot - or will not - see them.

Much love,
Larry
