'Questions for those who work with abused children
and survivor of child abuse.
How do you explain the hurt inside a child so small
Who every time she spoke was hit until she'd fall
How do you speak of love when all she knew was hate
And the constant beatings which she saw as fate
How do you start to heal that which you can't see
If the little one keeps hiding for fear of what might be
How do you instill hope where there's constant fear
And teach her to trust when she won't let you near
How do you understand if you've never known her pain
Or known how it is be treated like someone who's insane
How do you start the process and heal this child inside
If you cannot see the scars; they're not seen outside?
