The story of one abused child but there are thousands out there suffering physical, mental and sexual abbuse every day. Take note of any child who looks fearful

Winsome Child.

The last time that I came
to visit at an 

old friend's house,
I noticed that his daughter
was as timid 
as a mouse,
She had always 
been a winsome child,
just as precious as can be,
but what I was 
now observing,
it made no damn 
sense to me?
Cause every time 
he spoke to her
she'd wince a little bit,
and whenever 
he was near her
she would cringe 
like she'd been hit.
There was terror 
in her bright, blue eyes
that I knew did not belong,
fear I'd seen so 
many other times
in families gone wrong.
I'd been in the Marine corps
with the military police,
and I'd busted several men
who liked to take their liberties
Using their own 
family members
to hurt any who displeased
so when she went 
up to go to bed,
I brought him to his knees.
Winsome Child....
trapped in a life defiled
by your Daddies 
angry fists gone wild
time can never erase
all the battles 
that you've faced...
but perhaps you'll 
win some now.
I hit key spots 
that weakened him
his face it questioned why?
but I had no words 
to speak to him
till I'd let all my rage fly.
Then I looked him 
in the eyes and said,
"I know what you have done,
you've been beating 
up your daughter
 Man, I wish I had my gun." 

His face lost all its color
and he offered no defense,
cause I'd spent 
that night surrounded
by his damning evidence,

His winsome Child
trapped in a life defiled
by her daddies 
angry fists gone wild
time can never erase
all the battles she'd faced,
but I know she'll 
win some now....
Then I promised 
him that I'd be back
to check on her each day
and I'd put his foul 
flesh in the ground
if she was hurt in any way.
Then I called up social services
and I bent some ladies ear,
while he lay cringing on the floor
hoping I would not come near.
Then I kicked him 
where it hurt the most,
yelling "I hope I've made it clear
if your daughter suffers anymore
you're just gonna disappear."

Winsome Child
trapped in a life defiled
by your Daddies 
angry fists gone wild,
time can never erase,
all the battles you've faced
but I know you'll win some now
yeah for sure,
you'll win some now
winsome child.....

"For all the abused children 

both physically and sexually

Godspeed to a complete healing...."
