Another piece on child abuse speaking out against it.


Alive but dead
Here unseen
Crying out unheard
Bleeding uncut
From open wounds

You can't know
Problems don't exist
I am not here
Standing before you
Screaming with rage
At the pain shrouded

Damaged not scarred
Forever tainted
Open to all
Hiding from myself
To obscure the past

Transgressions not mine
Infractions to blame
Innocence lost
Aged years
No time passage
Who has lost

Time does not heal
Victims forever more
Suffer the children
