You broke me when I was a little boy
used me, abused me, like an old toy
I looked into the air wondering why me
no one would notice, no one could see.
Going to school with blackened eyes
always looking like I won second prize
friends would look, no one wanted to know
classed as a boys life, trying to grow.
Deep inside my soul, crying for help
cowering in fear, from the next skelp
when things go wrong, punch my face
make me see stars, travel to space.
One day I hope death comes my way
not from the pain, but from this day
take me from here, end my torment
heaven looks nice, but hell is bent.
To all you children, deadly scared
life of turmoil, warmth is spared
look to an adult, get them to hear
live your life happily, not in fear.
How many times do we read in the papers or see on TV the amount of kids who are abused, its not always sexually, some kids are brutally abused by adults for NO reason, its time to STOP, this is a zero tolerance subject, if you are suffering from abuse, of any kind, speak to a teacher or an adult you can trust or pick up a phone and dial for HELP, do not suffer alone.
Were YOU beaten as a child? do you know someone who was? did you carry this on to YOUR adulthood?
