So many times there are things that go unspoken, So many people in our world are hurting. So much to say and too little help comes their way.
Little girl why are you so sad?
What in the world has happened to make you so weary?
I see the tears hidden behind your freckles and bangs
I feel alongside with you
It is horrific what we humans do.
We take the innocent and make them accountable
Not for their sins but our own
We pound them down just to watch them under our very feet.
If one of us can control what isn’t ours to control
Then we become more and more bold.
I see you hide when he comes around
And it isn’t because he is a dressed up clown.
I know you feel so let down
I know no one was ever around to help you
It is not your fault
If being innocent and pretty makes you a target
That is a shame
He was the adult, he should have refrained.
I hear your prayers at night
I know you are searching for that one bright light.
You never get much sleep at night, wondering if he will come.
When daybreak sees you into another morning
I feel your excitement soon turn into mourning.
Mourning because you will have to defend, yet again
Those actions of his are his alone
Not your fault that you have to be home.
You are just a kid
A kid who deserves to be loved
Not ignored until you serve a purpose,
For that one you thought would love.
Your cries out in the woods
I hear them and know inside you, you are good.
Remember this thing won’t last your life long
If you can make it through this season or two
I have something better in place for you.
Don’t even think about ending your life
You have so much purpose, so much to give.
Your ending is still unwritten
You have the ultimate choice
And know my dear, I gave you a voice!
If you know someone who is being abused, mentally, physically, or otherwise, please stand up for them. Take it upon yourself to help them. I was a little girl who did not have anyone. I should have had someone but they failed to come to terms with what was happening to me. It is never okay to hurt another person. If you, yourself, have or is being abused, speak to someone , anyone! Don’t let it continue, don’t stay silent.
