The young girl watches in fear,

Tears blurring her vision,

She curls into a ball,

In the vain hope of protecting herself.


She is safe for the moment,

They have not seen her yet,

What they are doing,

It is wrong.

It frightens her.


She buries her head between her knees,

And felt completely helpless,

She cannot help, she knows.


She feels so guilty,

And ashamed,

Because she is so very frightened.

Even if she tried, she could not help,

But the fact that she lacks the courage to try,

Shames her.


Her head remains burrowed in her lap,

She does not move one bit,

And her tears continue to fall,

Trickling slowly down her face.
