Child Abuse! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar
Is such a word of horror
Only the child knows
How much pain she would
When she went through trauma.
How can one do such a thing?
Parents realizes too late.
What can be more worst is,
When their own relations,
Break their trust.
What the Child went through is beyond words.
With many questions pointed to her to prove herself.
Is the worst adding to her mental trauma.
As well her near ones doesn't support her
Instead throws tantrums on her.
Cover her with a shield of your protection and love.
Discuss openly with her
Regarding child abuse and all.
Make her feel always comfortable
That you are there will her always.
If child is introvert, observe her changes
Take her into confidence and open up her feelings.
Whether good or bad listen only listen cooly.
You cannot always be there as a shield
So help her to built a confidence of shield around her.
So that she always uses her presence of mind.
And this shield will protect her.
Child abuse may happen once or more.
But the scar is so deep inside the heart.
That its looks fine from outside.
She starts her life
Carries this scar with her till her death.
It is a life long punishment.
Even the culprit may serve or not, few years in jail.
He will think he paid for the crime
And lives happily.
Worst is the victim,
who didn't serve any imprisonment
Yet live a life of SELF IMPRISONMENT!
Never ever discuss the trauma
At any point of life.
Treat her like before!
Love Girl child as she needs yours Love!
