If I Could Change The World - Poem by Ella Rose

Did you know a report of child abuse is made every ten seconds?
There's emotional, physical and sexual defilement in certain cases,
these innocent sweet children deserve a home with love and nurture,
there's so many instances of children lost with unknown faces.

Revilement can cause mental health disorders in adulthood,
two thirds of people treated for addiction reported abuse as a child,
seventy percent of abused children are the age of seven and under,
and I'm sure millions of cases are unknown and never been filed.

If I could change the world I'd help raise awareness about this issue,
I'd fight to pass legislature to allow adult victims have free treatment,
for any critical health issues caused by the exploitation of their youth,
I would encourage volunteering to raise money to all be in agreement.

There needs to be better edification for the new foster parents,
instruction and proper methods to educate the agencies,
if only there was more awareness spread to families with children,
never leave your child unattended with people known strangely.

I beg and plead to all the people who have children of their own,
be cautious with who you leave them while unaccompanied,
and to all the sick people who have been accused of this act,
I swear one day there will be a better way to protect their needs.
