A Child Cries

"Somebody help me".
I can hear her say.
"I'm just a child".
"All I want to do is play".
"But somebody took me
from my mom and dad today".
"He stole me and took me
oh, so far away".
"I'm just a child".
"All I want to do is play".

"Why would anyone want to hurt me like this?"
"Please let me go home to play with my sis".
Please mister, I didn't do anything wrong".
I was just outside playing and singing a song".

"Somebody help me".
I can hear her say.
"I'm just a child".
"All I want to do is play".

"This man does things that hurt me day after day".
"Oh, how I just want to run away".
"But I don't know where to go or where I would stay".
"This man makes me cry when he hurts me this way".
Oh, how I hope someone will come and help me today".
"I'm just a child".
"All I want to do is play".

I wrote this poem after watching an Oprah show the other day about child molesters and it just breaks my heart to know that there are children out there who are going through this abuse day after day. They don't deserve to be treated like this. They are innocent victims of a very sick world. Please pray for the children.

For more information on abuse (especially on children) please vist Child Abuse (The Rest Of The Story) There are links provided there to get much needed help.
