Tag Archives: a child’s rights

I am but five years old

I am a child and know no pains
I am just five and play but games
I laugh and hop and jump around
I am cheerful, happy and sound.

Along comes a man big and vile
He entices me with a lot of guile
He bruises and hurts me with his penis
He stuffs a candle into my anus

He tries to strangle me and tortures me too
I am bleeding and shocked to say the least
To the police my stunned father runs
The police shake their heads, take no guns

OH society I knew not the meaning of the words that I have used
My mind is a turmoil and I am internally bruised
Why or why can I not be a child!!
OH Society can’t you protect an innocent child?
