Tears Pray, A Poem About Child Abuse

Updated on June 3, 2013
Black Abstract
Black Abstract | Source


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!”

      @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"

      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

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Thanks for your response Rajan Jolly, you are sure right! There are heart-breaking stories popping up everywhere around the world. When will the abuse stop in homes!

      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.
