Who Would've Guessed?

Who would've guessed that a grandfather,
A man you thought you trusted,
Would hurt you?
Such a physcial and emotional hurt.
Who would've guessed that he would threaten
Children to not tell anyone what he did?
Who would've guessed it would be him?
A man who claimed to be a strong follower of God,
Who was respected and known.
A man who was my grandpa.
Who would've guessed this man would be a pedophile?
He toyed with our emotions,
Lied to his wife and family,
And still said he followed God!
We put the charges against him,
We took him to court.
He never confessed the truth!
Now...
Who would've guessed that this man now has cancer?
Who would've guessed that this man DESERVES to die?
...Who would've guessed?
