Another Precious Child

Don’t…don’t turn your head and look the other away…
It is as real as the skin that crawls shivering across your bones.
See it for what it is, don’t deny the brutal truth…
Even as the idea gives breath to past misery of your own.

Fight! Fight I say, for those little ones who cannot defend…
This babe who looks through innocent eyes.
Pretending that reality is just your own imagination…
Will steal trust from a child, as you turn your eyes aside.

It is a haunting memory, that begs you disregard the present…
Even as it is real and happening, with no disguise.
There comes a time when time should forever stop…
Stop the abuse, before it scars another precious child’s life.

Artist's Description

I know that this is a subject not often talked of or written about… But it is a reality…abuse… in so many different forms it is happening. The sad thing is that sometimes those that see and know, choose to not become involved, for varied reasons. Even those who survived abuse themselves tend to turn their eyes…No one human being should ever have to live through such a nightmare…
