This is a fictional poem but sadly, it's reality for some people

Last Summer, I accidentally killed my baby son.
When I learned what happened, I screamed "What have I done?!"
I carry a burden and my very soul has been left with a scar.
My baby's life came to an end when I left him in my car.
I forgot that he was in the back seat.
My poor son died because of the heat.
I was burdened with financial problems and that's why I forgot.
My wife told me to burn in Hell, she said that she hopes I will rot.
Those financial problems are nothing compared to burden that I now carry on my shoulders.
It was an accident and I begged for another chance, but my wife left me in spite of what I told her.
My baby son is dead and buried and I'm the only one to blame.
I lost my family and I know that life can never again be the same.
I begged God to strike me down, I don't want to go on with my life.
I don't deserve to live because I lost my son and my beloved wife.
You're looking at a scarred man so please don't make the same mistake that I did.
Don't make the same mistake because if you do, you will have to bury your kid.
