HOW CAN YOU!!!

NEWS REPORT “A CHILD HAS DIED!!!”
Beaten black and blue, was the only abuse he knew,
His cries unanswered, no-one cared enough
How can you ignore, is there not something you can do!!!

A heart so broken, love was never felt
Only words that hurt, how her ears did sting,
Her eyes over-flowing with so many tears
Wishing an angel would sweep her away on her wings.

How can you ignore, turn and shut the door
How can you ignore, and pretend it’s not there,
How can you ignore, can’t you envision the hurt
How can you ignore, do you really not care!!!

So many screams can be heard, so sad!!!
So many intense feelings they have nowhere to run,
Afraid to be hurt, they retreat in fear
Emotional, Physical, the damage is done!!!

How can you ignore, if you see abuse happen to a child
How can you ignore, bruises so unexplained,
How can you ignore the look in their eyes
How can you ignore, their bodies so drained.

We can’t ignore the sadness they show
We can’t ignore the reports that we hear,
We can’t ignore, we can’t shut that door
Speak out!!! Reach out!!! Wipe away a tear.
