Hush little baby
Don't you cry
Don't say goodbye
Put down that razor
And put down that light
It might be hard
But you will win this fight

My little baby
You have no one but you
Please don't fall apart
For this is just the start

Little baby,
You are so beautiful in all the right ways
I know you're so strong
And your pain is even stronger
But don't give up now
For you still have so much to live for


Dear little baby
I cry
I cry for your empty, hollow eyes
If only I could save you
But you have to save yourself.

Unlike you, many people have not been able to grasp the idea of this poem. The victim in the poem is compared to a baby, who is weak and vulnerable. The way you felt while reading is exactly how I felt while reading it. Anyway, I appreciate it. Thanks so much.
