SADNESS IN HIS FACE

1st:
Get back dont touch me
was all he had to say
Six years old blonde hair blue eyes
A sadness in his face
How things had ever gone this far
I still wonder to this day
But I hope I never see again
that sadness in his face

Chorus:
Sadness in his face
tears are rolling down
How can someone that he loves so much
be screaming at him now
How things had ever gone this far
I still wonder to this day
But I hope I never see again
that sadness in his face

2nd:
One boy one father
how close we used to be
He taught me how to ride a bike
and bandage wounded knees
Wed argue about many things
pick your clothes up clean this place
When he said the words in anger
there was sadness in my face

Chorus:
Sadness in his face
tears are rolling down
How can someone that he loves so much
be screaming at him now
How things had ever gone this far
I still wonder to this day
But I hope I never see again
that sadness in his face

3rd:
At times I wonder
if lives will ever change
Some things learned and passed on down
must not be pre arranged
If cycles can be broken
bad habits be erased
One blonde haired blue eyed child
would have no sadness in his face

Chorus:
Sadness in his face
tears are rolling down
How can someone that he loves so much
be screaming at him now
How things had ever gone this far
I still wonder to this day
But I hope I never see again
that sadness in his face

Hi Craig,
You tell this story well, and I think it's a good write. Personally, I would love to see something in there that tells the parents side a little too. I see so many children today growing up with no discipline and no rules at all, and see what the results are out on the streets. Yes, there have to be lines parents should not cross, but i had my butt beat every time I was bad and I am no worse, and I think better for it.

I guess I was trying to show the cyclical nature of abuse. It seems so prevalent in society now days whether child, women, men and animals. God knows I had the belt or a set of hands whipping my ass growing up but statistics show its not a conducive form of discipline. I guess I would leave it up to parents.
Thanks John

There is a saying from the Bible: "Spare the rod, spoil the child". I have seen children raised without discipline and I believe it to be true. A child should not have to live in fear but they should have boundaries.

This brings to mind one of our most notorious serial killers. Stories were told of how John Wayne Gacy was abused as a child and look what the result was there. Types of discipline that were commonplace years ago would get one locked up today. That is a good thing in many ways, yet we can question whether it is not so good in others. Many street gang members had grown up with absentee fathers; no doubt some may have had absentee mothers as well.
