"No Child"

By: Shinga

Rated: PG-13 for dark subject

Disclaimer: Mine.

A/N: A poem about children being abused or molested. It's a touchy subject, but I wrote it anyway.

****

A child
So young
Wings so small
Curious hands, bright eyes watching butterflies
A child
Too young
Wings too small
Tainted
Prints forever burned onto a heart not yet grown
Black hands
On a young soul
How could she know
Why she was changed
My inner child forever without security, purity, peace
No child should know
