There Are Some Crimes That
Cannot Be Forgiven
There are some crimes that cannot be
For which no punishment can be enough,
Which should by
such harsh sentence be forbidden
That none would dare so damned a
And yet the children still are raped, abused,
actors in a nightmare none should see,
Fondled, fettered, forced,
By those who cannot help but evil be.
And for such
twisted souls no cure is certain.
The debt cannot be paid and left
Freedom brings anew the old temptation,
And all the
tightened springs beg to unwind.
All people in their sorrow should be
But some must ever be from us
