Daily Prompt: Blogger With a Cause
If your day to day responsibilities were taken care of and you could throw yourself completely behind a cause, what would it be?

Do You Hear the Children Crying?

Do you hear the children crying
As they scream up and down the halls?
They know daddy hits their mommy
and they watch her as she falls
They run to her side daily
till Daddy comes in the room
Then it’s time to run and hide
the next one’s coming soon
They say, “God please help my mommy
she needs you Lord today
cuz Daddy’s mad and I’m so sad
he says ‘she’s gonna pay’
Why God don’t you kill him?
just stop him in his tracks?
Protect us Lord, we need you now
before he starts to smack”
Finally Mommy dials 9-1-1
she made it to the phone
They take Daddy off to jail
and tell us now to run.
