A Darkness Dwells Within Us

A darkness dwells within us

Slowly growing,

Corrupting those of weak hearts and

Lazy minds

Until it drives us to do great

Wrong

And

Evil

In the form

Of using

Pain

And

Punishment

To teach our children

Lessons

And

Discipline.

Cruelty develops

Goes unnoticed.

Fear burns in the hearts of our young

It is ignored.

The evil among us goes undefeated.

It is the evil of pain.

Mistreatment of children goes unresolved.

Innocent life

After

Innocent life

Is brought into and

Dwells in a

Household of fear.

Is goes unnoticed,

Unstopped,

Forever.

If physical punishment were a God,

It would be strong beyond belief.

And we would wonder how it came to be so powerful

Yet it would be through us

That the God came into being and grew to great

Unstoppable

Power.
