Do You Hear the Children Crying

by dianarasmussen

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’

God why don’t just you kill him?
and 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 we have to run.
