Is this really happening because its horrible. An unattended child? He will be worse when he grows up. Disturbing imagery, beautifully rendered in words. Although I hope this ones only a fantasy. Definitely a 5.
Wow that poem brought me right back to when I had to watch that happen to a child because she too fell through the cracks... Idid not make me sad though because I know that she is in heaven waiting for me to play with her and hold her. I gave you a FIVE for this poem and I look forward to reading more.

Oh, Debbie. I loved this one, it was so sad, i could see the little child, and it brought pain to my eyes.
A really sad and emotional poem, that was written wonderfully.
