Treasure Island

Stephen Holland

(1958 / Wakefield)

You Child

Child one time, and time relates
This child witness love and hate
Innocence at once besieged
Violated evil released
Those you trust turn out the worst
Those you trust are those who hurt
Chase your ghosts in vain pursuit
To conceal the bitter truth
Just a child, abused, defiled

[Hata Bildir]
