The Growing Pain of an Innocent Child
(Dedicated to my precious Amanda,
who was courageous enough to tell)
My innocent child, with trusting heart, feels the "growing pain"... this I know
For there is a betrayal of trust between parent and child, that with time... damage begins to show
Children are being exploited in adult fantasies of perversion, that have nightmarishly come true.
Realize, there are emotional scars that linger... due to scare tactics they've been subject to...
Children are being set-up to be victimized these days, because the perpetrator knows...
there's such a small price HE pays!
My worst nightmare came true, when my little girl disclosed
Her "Daddy and his friends" had molested her...
It seems to go on like a never ending chain... as I remember painfully,
I too, am an incest survivor...
If after reading this, you too can see...
Something has to be done about this!
Please, write a letter on behalf of a child and send it to your Representative in Congress.
Only with YOUR help, we may someday see
true freedom and justice for all!
and maybe our children will stand a fighting chance
to escape the 'perverts call'
