A Pain Free Chidhood
Author: Barbara Goodhew


No scars,no pain, bad memories just a nightmare.
It would be nice if this was life, to be fair.

Sad but every body has childhood pain.
Some have more pain than others.

The pain of the past, should prevent us from
Causing pain in the future.

We learn

I think most people learn form what happened in childhood and don't want our kids to suffer what we did.A sensitive poem.
