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.

FOCUS! HURDLES NOTWITHSTANDING

Ever wondered where All the hurdles hide When you took no steps But suddenly surfaces When you have a cause to clutch to When you move to make a mark When you dare to deliver on your dreams Looking for how to pull you down
Some sent To test your resolve Some thrown To test your temper Some just emerge To test your tenacity
They are what they are Distractions! Distractions!! Distractions!!! Jump the hurdles And move on 
So set on a mission My target is my focus Ready to deliver The hurdles notwithstanding

TEACHERS ARE GREAT

Your dreams came true Because your teachers believed in you Selflessly committed themselves And painstakingly walked you through it And celebrated you all the way That became their joy It became their achievement You became their dream come true Teachers are great Teachers are heroes Happy Teacher's Day All Rights Reserved © Stella C.
