As a little child

(Warning this is a sensitive content)

As a little child

You were my only world,

The only shield to protect from the outer world.

I knew you by my side

Nothing dared to even look at me with evil eyes.

And then in the most shocking moment

That broke away my reality

You revealed your side i wish i had never seen.

Now life is double the fight every second

Accepting the truth that I couldn’t believe then

Living without a shield to make me feel safe again.

But

Then I have come to terms with it

Knowing I am not alone to have faced it

Yes there are questions unanswered

How could one stoop so deep

How do we tell them you are safe

After knowing the hands that were to protect

Were the ones to bring the ill fate.
