a child

what is a little girl supposed to do
when she cries for help
and she's made to feel like a fool?
when those she trusted
left her alone in a crowded room?
what is a little girl supposed to do?
what is a little boy supposed to do
when you've made it clear that
you won't accept him?
when you've given him a life filled with hate
so he doesn't know how to love?
what is a little boy supposed to do?
what is a child supposed to do
when they can't see the end of their suffering,
and no one is listening?
when you call them selfish,
but your selfishness is what started it?
what is a child supposed to do?
