I am a child

I am a child

These eyes have seen things
Both beauty and sadness
These eyes have watered tons
Yet I am still a child

Beyond my years I’ve seen plenty
Things ought to have been shielded
In window of my soul they’re written
Inscribed in the book of my memories

Dare not look away from my plight
Though troubled by time am still a child
Take a closer look beyond the glassy walls
I am a child in need of love and care

Throw me not crumbs and pained looks
These only last till your smile narrows
Turn not your back and walk away
Take my hand lead the way home

I am a child in the midst of chaos
Yet peace dwells in my pleading eyes
Dare not tarnish my innocence
I come to you as a child

At night I succumb to nightmares
Tis the atrocities that no child ought to know
Behind these innocent walls of my eyes
Lies secrets forever hidden
