~ An Hour With You~

A loud voice booms,
A little child hides,
Each cutting word,
Makes scars inside.

A big hand falls,
A small child cries,
God’s little one,
Has been defiled.

An unfeeling parent,
Quietly walks away,
Leaving a hurting child,
No self-respect today.

Tears streak down,
A scared little face,
With desperate sobs,
The body shakes.

Another day has begun,
Like so many in the past,
Someone help me please,
The hurt is harder to mask.

I wish that I could flee,
This life that I lead,
Can someone please,
Hear me when I plead.

The sun will set,
And night will fall,
No peace it brings to me,
For no one answers my call.

Somebody help me please!
