I'm Just A ChildMature

How can a child be to blame for hazing? For bullying? For sexual abuse? How can a child fight off an adult? How can a child even understand?

I'm just a child but my Mom will hit me because it's my fault

I'm just a child but my Dad will rape me because it's my fault

I'm just a child but I afford to go to school because it's my fault

I'm just a child but we'll never see my brother again because it's my fault

I'm just a child but I can't join in unless I'm hazed because it's my fault

I'm just a child but my home was bombed because it's my fault

I'm just a child but my sister killed herself because it's my fault

I'm just a child but no one will be my friend because it's my fault

The End
