A child's nightmare of abuse and the court's reluctance to stop it.

Justice - Hear MeÖ


 

 

  If I told you he hurts me, would you be shocked?

Would you believe me? Or would I be mocked?

 

 The courts didnít believe me because I am small.

My trembling voice silenced. I was never heard at all.

 

 You said I should tell! Now you hush me as I speak.

Are you too deaf to listen? Now a bad man walks the street.

 

 Are you ashamed of whatís happening or just too blind to see 

the way that this bad man is hurting me?

 

 Society has failed me. I am only a child,

begging for help, but justice is blind.


 

 What must I do? What must I say

to keep this man from hurting me this way?

 

 I am not the only child who will suffer by him.

I fear for the others that run into him.

 

 I trusted the man that wore a black gown.

But he is blind too and has shamefully let me down.

 

 Lock him away! Please listen to me!

Let other children live happy and free.

 

 Let me be their voice, let me pave the way

for this inhuman monster to be locked away.

 

 I want to sleep without nightmares. I want to proudly show my face.

But I cannot do this until justice takes its place.

 

 Justice- hear me! Iím suffering with pain.

Please lock the bad man away so he canít hurt me again.

 

 I hate him and I love him, but he must not be free.

You see, the bad man is Daddy, and I am only three.
