Child Abuse! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

Child Abuse...
Is such a word of horror
Only the child knows
How much pain she would
Have been,
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.

Raped further......
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!

    Children are abused in many ways. At an age when they should go schools they are sent to work whereat they are mentally and physically abused. At the shops of mechanics Ustad says oey chota 7 number da plier pharain then one day he becomes an Ustad and stats abusing another child. (Report)Reply

    This excellent poem is so relevant right now as a terrible case of child cruelty is going on in my home city of Coventry here in England.the two people concerned are from Poland and the so called mother and step father
    cruelly beat up the poor child, fed him him Salt, locked him in a box room, and when he died from a beating he weighed a stone in weight and he was four years of age! They get sentenced today But no sentence can be long enough for this evil pair I feel.
