Down comes the hand of
Anger
Leaving its mark on the young
Childs face
What did this child do to deserve so much
Hatred
Crrrrrrrrrrack
Goes the belt
Here comes the welts
The bruises are here to stay
Even though they can't be seen by the human
Eye

Have you ever known anyone to hit with a
Belt
Plastic Baseball Bat
Extension cord
High heeled shoe
If your answer is yes then explain how this is done

No child deserves to be placed in a home where they will not be loved
Where they have to hide in corners
Live in the dark
Share their feelings only with
God

Fear has gripped onto
Them
They are not happy and they show this in ways that
Only makes the abuser even more
Angry

They wet the bed
They tell stories to hide the pain
They cry themselves to sleep
They cry themselves awake
When does the tears end
Can they ever get over the pain caused by the One's who were suppose to show them
Love

Since they didn't get help as a child it carries into their adult life
They hate all
(without even wanting to)
They give themselves a false sense of Security
Latching on to those who continue to hurt Them
Even though they know it's wrong
But that's what they are use to

Show a child hate
A child will hate
Show a child love
A child will give you the world
Show a child pain
And it will eat at them for the rest of their
Life

Trust me, for I know this on a first hand Basis
The love I dream about is just that
A DREAM

So very sad...I especially like the second to last verse. Good job.
