~Songs and Whispers~


Songs and whispers they

dance around in my head.

I am a child dreaming of a

magical place to escape,

from all the horrible

things going on, hoping they

will never happen to me again.

Songs and whispers

of a happy place to play,

have fun and feel no shame

or disgrace. A place where

all abused children go, to

escape the pain of the

unwanted touching of those

monsters hands.

Holding on

to that happy place where

songs and whispers put a

smile on each

of those children's face.
