Death is a very sensitive issue to most people and, indeed, can be hard to understand at times. Even harder to understand for me is the concept of one human taking the life of another, especially when the victim is an innocent child.

This is about a 2 year old boy who was sexually and physically abused and ultimately murdered. There was never enough evidence to convict the accused father. The mother was never arrested but while she had the time and the money, never even bother to have a funeral for her child.

The child was ultimately buried by the state and donations were taken to place a headstone. I still get utterly sick with grief every time I think of the whole episode and the amount of preventable abuse that goes on today. This was not an easy poem to write and is not an easy poem to share. Anyone who's ever stood on the other side of abuse will understand, I'm sure. I know I understand :( .



Oh Little Boy Black and Blue,
Who was it that did this to you?
Who raised a hand at innocence?
Did they proclaim their eminence-
At a child's expense?

Is this your beloved mother's psalm,
This stormy song beneath your calm?
The one who nourished you from birth.
Were you more trouble then you were worth?
Oh was it her who did this to you,
Little Boy Black and Blue?

Was it your father, that loving soul?
Did the alcohol cause him to lose control?
Was his patience tried and taunted-
By the boy he never wanted?
Oh was it him that did this to you,
Little Boy Black and Blue?

Oh Little Boy Black and Blue,
The autopsy confirms it was true.
You were sodomized and strangled.
You were beaten, broken, mangled.
You must've screamed in agony,
As bloodstained hands brought you more misery.
Oh was it someone you never even knew,
Little Boy Black and Blue?​


I had this passed on to me. Now, I'm passing it on to you guys and maybe it'll hit you like it hit me. I dunno, but...I had a very abusive mom and it is very scary. Actually, I'll post a poem I DID write about my past for yall in the writer's block section. Look for it in a few mins...

I know, people these days. God. I have two girls. I know I'm 24, yah :p. Lol, anyways, Elizabeth Nicole will be 5 in Feburary and Marian Leigh will be 2 in 3 weeks. I can't imagine, jeeze. I mean, to know that the mom wouldn't testify or even pay for the funeral. That's sick. I just don't understand.

Just think how it was in the past, shit like this probably happened all the time, it's disgusting. The people who do that shit are probably mentally disturbed and need to be locked up in Asylums.

I know, and they dont even want to get help. When I had my first child, Elizabeth, I had postpartum depression. It got so bad that I had some bad thoughts, and then I was like "WTF, WHAT the HELL kind of mom thinks this shit??". So, long story short...I went to a phsychiatrist to get help and put on meds. At the time I was married and my husband worked all the time and the physch didn't think it was a good idea leaving her with me alone. Even tho I knew I wasn't actually gonna do anything, because I couldn't, I still followed through with her orders. My mom and dad had to watch her for 2 months while the meds kicked in and started working. See? now how hard is that, jesus christ.

Some people cannot control their anger and they let loose on their kids as we can plainly see with this case. They also might not be as smart as you and didn't think of going to a psychiatrist.

Yah, and the fact that they don't want to upset their family. Or, at least that's how I was. I hid it for a while, about 2 weeks, because I didn't want my mom to look down on me anymore and call me a looser and all like she did. But, finally I confided in my husband and my general practitioner and we set up the phsych appt. It was the one of the best decisions in my life....

I hasn't experienced any thing like that so I couldn't really say anything. Glad that you're better now.
