Sentence Passed

Struggles faced by a tortured soul.

Difficult to see the brighter side of life.
Hidden away in dimness, feeling strife.

Inadequacies, linger in the shadows.
Darkness, spearing wits like arrows.

Memories of a childhood stolen early.
Growing beyond years too fast surely.

Guilty thoughts, a child has no choice.
Heart, mind debating, without rejoice.

Instead of pilfering ones childhood.
Life taken completely, they should.

Better option than a life sentence passed.
Dying little by little, ones mind harassed.

Eternally locked in a cold, dark, prison cell.
Laughing outwardly, crying inside, a battle.

Victim, perpetually serves a living conviction.
Perpetrator runs freely, not facing any diction.

Love and nurturing, truly are a child's only needs.
Not abuse, guilt, or shame, left by another's deeds.
