Smothered Innocence

The Venna double murder of a doting grandmother and an innocent infant, touched my heart deeply and stirred up emotions within.

Their precious bundle-of-joy,
She filled their lives with bliss.
Showered her with love and care,
Only the best life for her, they wished.

Princess of their kingdom,
Their world revolved around her.
Her every tear, her every cry,
They kissed away clear.

An ill-fated day came by,
With warning, none at all,
Turned their lives upside down,
Leaving everyone appalled!

Baby girl was taken,
Her hapless grandmother, slain
The family was swept in a wave,
Of immeasurable pain.

Grief-stricken by the loss of one,
With no news of the missing child,
Fearful thoughts, unspoken,
Crept inside every mind.

Where was the baby hidden?
Hope she is safe and fine.
Has she been harmed?
Is she in pain?

Their worst fear came true,
Hearts bled with agony,
Wounds got much deeper,
As details poured in, of the brutality.

Who was this monster?
Did God forget to put a heart in him?
How did his conscience permit him,
To commit such ruthless sins?

He traded the life of innocent two,
For mere greed of money,
What can be more inhumane,
Or is this the evil face of humanity?

Dreams of her happy future,
Burnt up in smoke,
They are left with just a vacuum,
That aches and chokes.

Dear God, please be their solace,
As they move on, sans their angel.
Cure this world of such demons,
Bring peace to the departed souls.
