Lost Child

Lost child-
Your innocence was taken
By a man who spit on your soul.
The damage was done,
You couldn’t even run
From the fear that swallowed you whole.
You cry in the night
And by day hide your fright
From the people who know not the truth
Your dreams were forsaken
By the act that had taken
The purity of your youth

Lost child-
You are consumed with the pain
Caused by acts of long ago.
You were left to live,
And learn to forgive,
But how can you let it go?
As you make your way
Through the reality of the day
And the dreams that flood your sleep,
What hides behind
The shadows of your mind
Comes out at night to creep.
