The Voice of a Child



Child abuse.

Can you hear me?

Can you see me?

I am here but no one can see nor hear me?

Am I like Tommy, stuck in a pinball nightmare of silence and solitude

am I like that proverbial mushroom, in the dark surrounded by shit.


I am, but yet nothing acknowledges me

Is my reality so far away from yours that I am but a shadow

My shadow not even a reminder of my presence or passing

Do you feel me?

Do you smell me?


Please don't turn from me

I suffer silently 

but I reach for you physically

who am I?

who are you?


you are those that ignore me 

those that pretend I don't exist

you are the ones that allow my pain to endure

And I,

I am your silent victim


I am the child next door!
