Struggle

By , Savannah, GA
Abuse is such a terrible
Thing of the mind and body
Every human fears pain
Every human fears the result
Of pain

We all know of
Abuse
We have heard it
Since we were young
To stop it
To help
Those victims

But what if you
Are one of those
Victims yourself?
Who is to help
You?

Every day, faced
With the pain
The memories
Each day is a new
Struggle
Only wish to escape

Your own life
Awake
Is your own
Nightmare
You fear to even
Sleep

What are you to do then?
You struggle for silence
You struggle to not
Scream
To let others know
Of your pain

Maybe they could help
Maybe they could get us free
But no
Even they contribute
To the violence

Now who are you to
Reach out to now?
You talk to
Everyone
Teachers
Counselors
People
Friends
Family
Police

They don't want to help
Now you struggle
Just
To
Survive
