ironically, parents can now be jailed for child neglect.
because taking parents away from their children solves the problem of child neglect???????

i dare not say i was neglected...i was just left alone
solitude reaps great thoughts...sometimes terrible thoughts ...but great thoughts

It was the "neglect" of my single parent, 8am to 8pm working class mother that caused me to surround myself with books

so thanks mum for not being there

title : Little boy lost


Alone I sit
I weep to keep
My sanity amidst profanity and slurs
Curse words and worse words
Alone I sit
I weep to keep
The peace at least
My auntís deceased
Alone I sit
I weep to keep
Away from death
Satanís hot breath
Alone I sit
I weep no more
A blackened core
Locked is this door
Alone I sit
Words I speak not
Inside I rot
See not a smile
Ignore this child
Alone I sit
