I Feel Your Pain - Poem by Katinka Havermans

I feel your pain
Your struggle
It has got to hurt
Deep inside

You are so tough
A strong boy
A man even
But just a child

I feel your pain
It is mine too
You know
I can only watch

You can do it
Yourself you say
I want to help
And say it will be allright

I feel your pain
It must hurt
Even after six years
That your mum and dad
Don't even like each other anymore
