Like a Child
Leanne, Age 15, Chemainus, BC

Like a child
I cannot speak
Unlike the strong
I am becoming weak
He won't listen
To a breath of my past
Or maybe he can't accept
I've grown up way too fast.
It haunts my soul
The way that we fought
If only I could help him see
The way he looks down on me
If only he could understand
I only need a helping hand
The constant fear
That chokes my life
Attempts to conceal
My body aches
My voice is meek
like a newborn child
I cannot speak.
