It Shouldn’t Hurt to be A Child (In Memory of Kelsey Brigg’s)

I did not know this little girl, but her story needs to be told, we need to bring awareness.  This little girl was killed by her step father, two weeks before her birth father was due to come home from Iraq..

Little girls should

Not have to go

Through what you went

Through a life

Cut to short

Violence overtaken

Childhood should never hurt

Only two short years

On this earth

Because

Of one man’s anger.

A Father should not have

To come home

From war

Only to face the worst

Hell imaginable

Burying his baby girl.

Childhood should not hurt

The way it did for you.
