ABUSED - BUT I AM A CHILD




Everywhere went black and blank
Echoes fading away gradually
My ear whistling in pain
While I scampered for balance
It was a slap
Another slap
For being a child

I want to play like my friends
I want to be loved like others
I want daddy’s affirming words
I want mummy’s sweet cuddles
But the opposite I get

You call me unimaginable names
Beat me at every slightest provocation
You whip me like an animal
The scars are everywhere
You compare me with everyone
Never seen anything good in what I do
Never appreciate my effort
Even when I don’t understand why

The sound of your voice is terror to me
What have I done again?
The sound of your feet frightens me
What is it this time?
I fear you
For what you will do to me again

You don't have my time
You don't listen to me
Your busy schedules wouldn’t let you see my needs
I am left in the hands of strangers to grow
You don't know me mum
You don’t know me dad
Yet you call me names

I see my friends parents show up at the school gate
There on their birthdays
Present at their presentations
I have always looked forward to seeing you do same for me
Cheer me in from the crowd
Remind me my lines from the rear
Instead you have called names
When you don’t even know me

So many things I love to share
But I can't
So many things I wish I could tell you
Not on my life
I want you present
Change please
Please change
I want to look forward to coming home
I want a home where I am loved
I want to grow knowing you know me
Please change
Please change

They are our future
Be available in their today
Say NO to every form of Child Abuse.

I WILL TRY AGAIN

Failure smile with a stern look Beckons on my deflated ego Whispers the blatant questions What have you learnt? Go, try again
I am not afraid to try again If I didn’t make a move I wouldn’t have If I had stayed same I wouldn’t have If I wasn’t thirsty for a change I wouldn’t have
I will try again Sure I learnt I am not afraid to try again
Not ashamed to try again For in that failure I have learnt not to do it that way again Discovered that failure is a ticket to try again Ticket to do it better Not a ticket to give up
Missing my steps and facing its bruises I have learnt to be careful the next time If I never tried I wouldn’t have known better Failure is not a death sentence to my dreams But a live wire to a better me
I choose to see the bright side of it I choose to count my losses for good I choose to make them a part of my success story I will try again

PEACE OF MIND

Peace of mind When I have done all I know to do All I need to do All I can do All I am meant to do
Peace of mind When I have said the truth Stood by the truth Stood for what is right
Peace of mind When I have played my part Given my best Given my all
Peace of mind When I have worked in love Shared my heart Shared my moments
Peace of Mind When I am at peace with all men Peace with all things Peace with Me
Peace of mind When my heart is right with my Maker I do His will He speaks to me
Peace of mind When I know all things are working together for my good
Peace of mind
