They're broken and beaten and treated without care
So many hurting children wondering if anyone is "there"
Carrying within them their secrets of hatred and harm
If all their voices were heard now we'd be filled with alarm
Afraid of a world that has allowed them to be hurt
Little ones who are abused now feel like nothing but dirt
Their self esteeem trampled by those who should love
Their little bodies so tortured, angels weep from above.
With all of the campaigning we do for this thing or that
Who'll speak for these little ones, where are their advocates at?
We speak of the injustices and cry : "equality for all"
Why don't we shout louder for the most helpless and small?
Work to stop child abuse.
