It’s easy
To be deceived
They come as
A teacher
A police officer
A family member
No one is exempted
To who
May be dangerous
Around children
I want to raise
A Healthy
Strong willed
Well rounded
Mentally stable
Productive
Compassionate
Individual
That will not
Allow
Any obstacle to
Discourage them
From
Reaching their goals
And doing their best
While using their
God’s given talent
To be happy
I will promise
To teach
And prepare them
For the concrete jungle
Help them
To not fall
Into the grasp
Of exploiters
My child
Any child
We need
To protect them
Stop
Calling them
Ugly
Stupid
And worthless
It lowers self-esteem
Making them
Easy prey
For the evil
To touch them
It’s lurking
And
Walking amoung us
On a daily
Ready to
Take advantage
Of their vulnerability
Demolishing their
Future dreams
For the price
Of their innocence
They will tell
Them lies
To gain their trust
Influencing them to
Depend on them
To give them love
And attention
That will not
Benefit them
In the least
I have to
Ask myself
How do I protect
And raise you
Keep you
Safe
I want a
Guarantee
Before I conceive you
That once I bring
You in this world
You will
Return the same
Way you left me
After you leave the nest
Will it be enough
To fill
You up
To capacity
With
My heart
My love
My everything
So many
Of these
Miserable
Horrible people
Want influence
And crush you
I’m so scared
Of the image
Seeing
My child
Broken
Defeated
And
Crying
Out of pain
