Children are supposed to play,
Not spend so much time wondering why they've been betrayed.
At what age should a child be able to define dismay?
How young is too young for a child to learn to hate?
Why should a child have to portray,
That he has it all together, emotions at bay?
Should he be aware of the worlds troubles today?
For the child to be a kid is it ever too late?
The child wanted so badly to grow up,
But now of the suffering he's had more than enough.
