Tears Pray, A Poem About Child Abuse

Black Abstract
Black Abstract | Source

TEARS PRAY


Heritage in ruins

Roles at play,

Regular dysfunction

Stalled in discord.

Slashed souls

With fragile faces,

Tear you into pieces.

Identities pressed

Packaged in one,

The mind bleeds

Silenced in fear.

“Little terrors

Don’t cry, nor speak

Sit down,

do not move around,

let me be or

cop the whip!”

Tears drop

From skies above,

Alongside your pillow

“Sleep well little ones,

Healing is yours

Free you shall be

Hear me speak,

My spirit is

Your watch tower!”

Unfortunately, a reminder that though we have become richer in material things but become poorer in character. A sad truth!

Glad you brought this issue to the fore.

This is far too prevalent today. However, what is done under the cover of darkness, He will bring into the light.

Excellent write to such a terrible plight of children.

Voted Way Up and sharing

@Shiningirisheyes, Thanks for visiting my hub, and I do wish you well. A heart drenching subject matter to write up on, but my goal for this piece was dark intended, without the gruesome details, I hope I have achieved that "Silence Must be Heard"
