What you are about to read is true , I know this sweet little boy.

My name is Nicholas
I'm eight years old
I'm the youngest of three
Like any child my age I pick on my brother and sister as they do to me
I play with cars, trucks and our computer
I like having fun and playing jokes on everyone
Thats my funny side
When I first started school I was doing very well
My mom would help me with my school work every evening
I like learning something new everyday
Then one day mom got a job
She works second shift
So now dad is home with us
I have no help with my school work
Dad has no time he's always on his computer
He says its for work
So theres no one to help me
My mom has been called to school
The teacher says I'm not moving on as fast as the others
My homework is never done
And of course its all my fault
But no one will listen when I say I need help
The teacher also says I act up in class at times
Hey doesn't every kid have a moment like this
So now I'm labled as a problem child
Now because of all this I'm taken to see a doctor
My mom tells the doctor I'm out of control at home and at school
I don't see it that way
All I really need is a little love and attention from my mom and dad
But when its not there your on your own
Who knows what all mom told this doctor
All I know is I'm taking this awful medicine
The medicine does something to me
I'm not a happy eight year old boy that likes to have fun
I look at people with fear on my face
Very little I have to say
My blue eyes are dazed
I have no smile
I'm loosing weight
But most of all my heart is empty and my mind is blank
Others see this why can't you
If only I got a hug
Or maybe to hear you say "I love you"
Share a little time with me
I would have something to hold onto
Do you know the medicine is killing me slowly
Just the way you want it
It takes the burden off you and dad
And now you think I'm the perfect little boy
But in reality your killing me

Such a sad truth is written here. The ones suffering the most are the innocent victims of parents who can not see past their own damn noses. God Bless this child and all like him.

This is so sad and the terrible truth.
A child just needs love and attention.
Not some lousy drug. TY for this piece.
Everyone should be aware of this and
maybe some kids will be helped the right
way instead of with a drug.

Why do parents not have time for their children? It's mostly a sin...
Reviewed by Kate Clifford 2/19/2004
Parents that can not make time for their children, shouldn't have any. Thanks for the sharing.

Oh Nancy! This is pure heartbreak. I know a similar story of a friend almost lost her son when he was younger a few years back from ritalin given for (add)? anyway he's off it and fine now, but there was a long period when he was very sick. Parents don't always do what's best for their children, but what's most convenient for them. It's so sad! Great write!
