A Child Lost

February 16, 2020

 

 

A child full of hope
A child full of innocence

 

Into the world trusting
Into the world wide-eyed

 

On day one begins the torture
On day one begins the torment

 

The child steps onto school grounds in fear
The child steps onto school grounds full of terror

 

To themselves the child keeps the pain
To themselves the child keeps the horror

 

What was joy is now gone
What was joy is now resentment

 

Alone, singled out
Alone, the bully’s target

 

Alone, so very alone
Alone, no one to turn

 

No longer is hope
No longer is trust

 

Destroyed is innocence
Destroyed is the child
