On said impulses, could never bring ourselves to
Let our children become monsters, could not
Even fathom what goes on in the
Numb-to-reality mind of a
Child killer; of all innocence
Evil always at odds with

  1. This acrostic poem is a rare look at the other side. I find that people far too often prefer to deem things “unthinkable” and others “monsters” for doing things that are both well known and psychologically understandable. I’m not saying I defend things like murdering children, but well, you summed it up nicely with “numb-to-reality mind.” In many cases, those people are suffering themselves and others had the chance to help them first, yet did not.
