SCARED AND WITHDRAWN


child_abuse_0africanreporter.co.za

They heard of your voice,
and tremble they did,
“why?”
I wondered.

In all they did with you,
they showed lukewarm interest,
seemingly in need to be elsewhere,
it was an eerie sight.

At the sound of your voice,
all they heard was anger,
complaining,
ingratitude,
and all that came with it.

Leave the demons of yesteryears behind,
let the pain go,
hold it no more,
give rejection no foothold,
so you can raise your children,
minus the shadows,
they need you,
but at the moment,
they can’t stand you.
