Broken Child

Head in her hands, tears running down,
sounds of anger are everywhere around
A broken hearted child, wearing a frown,
Love in her house is nowhere to be found

She has to straighten up and  put on a face
that she has created  for her friends at school
If anyone should learn of what has taken place
She'd be severely beaten;  for that is the rule.

Skipping and jumping pretending all is fine
No one at school could hear her hidden cries
The teacher sees something and pulls her from line
She questions the little girl with tears in her eyes

What would her mom do knowing that she spoke
The little girl shuts down; won't say any  more
The teachers knows  enough, her own heart is broke
Children shouldn't have to walk around  feeling so sore.
