#to be heard: The Silent Child

Tue, 07/08/2014 - 11:53 -- haleyJ

  A silent child scared to speak

a silent child who's afraid of what people think

a silent child who so desperately wants to be heard

a silent child with the voice of a lion is so afraid of our difficult and crazy world that she'd rather leave her words unheard. 

 A silent child with something important to say

a silent child who could change our ways

a silent child who needs to be heard  is giving up on everything that she once felt she deserved.

   So who will listen to the silent child, who will hear her cry who will help her find her way to the outspoken woman growing inside.

who will walk with the silent child
