Children

Children killed in war
Children sexually abused
Children suppressed manipulated
Children lost and confused

Children cold and hungry
Children full of self-doubt
Children scared alone depressed
Children unable to shout

Children told to be quiet
Beaten black and blue
Don't you dare disobey my command
You'll do exactly what I tell you

Children spoon-fed lies
Children controlled from birth
Children taught to be seen not heard
Children with no self-worth

Children bound and gagged
Lying in faeces and piss
Children sold to the highest bidder
Children facing the abyss

Children broken down
Cheated and beguiled
Children living horrible lives
Who on earth would want to be a child
