it's a beautiful world
outside this window
but within these walls
lives a dark and sinister force,
the warden of my mental prison,
who subject innocent children like me
to unimaginable pain and suffering.
can someone please rescue me?
*this piece is written from the perspective of a child living through any form of child abuse - emotional, physical, sexual, verbal harm or neglect. chances are, you will walk by one of them today.
i pray for them.
