The Scars (Cinquain #3) . - Poem by Carl Roussell

Your voice,
the price you paid.
A young and broken life,
beaten and battered, bones fractured.
The scars.

    grow up they will tell inspiring mem'ries.10++

    I have never understood the need to exercise such control over someone, especially the young who do not have the emotional tools to leave the situation..

    Thanks. Though I have not experienced this behaviour, I have know a few who have, and their stories always moved me.
