Abused

After the storm,
She was lovely and sweet.
But kindness
And smiles
Should not be a treat.
Kindness and smiles
Are what we deserve,
Each day
From our parents,
That kindness preserves
The life living in us,
The joy in our souls,
But nastiness, bitterness
Slowly unfolds
The hate we did not know
Was hiding so deep
The hatred that kindness
And love work to keep
From taking us over,
From ruling our lives,
But hatred creeps in
When the we feel
We’re despised
By the people
We love and who
Should love us back
The abuse of that love’s
A most vicious attack.

  1. A lovely poem, written with feeling. the love of a parent for their child should be unconditional.
