A little boy

by Tracy D Rollings   Nov 16, 2007


In a world of misery and twisted lies

head in his lap as he begins to cry

body so weak and mind is blank

filled with pain it's hard to think

love has abandoned him and he's all alone

trying to figure out what he did wrong

covered with bruises and knots on his head

he sits there wishing he was dead

promises made but never kept

can't remember the last time he slept

crying out for help from living in fear

he's left to think no one cares

no coat on his back nor shoes on his feet

he can't remember the last time he eat

it's cold outside his body starts to shake

he don't know how much more he can take

finds a shed and fades off into the night

to open his eyes to a bright light

he hears a voice say no more pain

as God takes his hand and starts to explain

you are an angel in heaven with me

I couldn't bare to watch now your soul is free..©2007 Tracydr42

    Such a heartbreaking poem.
    So sad and it seems awful but by the end of the poem i am relieved by the way it finished. Its awful to think that i feel relief that he died but anything for his torment to be over. I felt a lump in my throat as i read it. Once again a truely amazing poem. Take care.
