Where Evil Came

The muted lips of those who trust

Do not bear witness in disgust

Of the wicked and the damned

Who attack with brute demands

They sit in silence and dismay

In empty closets where they play

In corridors with just one light

They dare not fathom in their plight

To reach the cord that is too high

For their legs to jump and try

And so they wander all alone

Far and away they softly roam

In their attempt to find release

Gently rocking for some peace

Though rolled into a tiny ball

The captor sees while even small

And brings a pain that is so deep

They cut and bleed so it may seep

From a deep wound inside a soul

That is a large and gaping hole

Where evil came to take away

To enter in and always stay

To enter in and always stay . . .
