Just a Child

I am child
Forced to be a man
Told what to do
Not able to choose

I am a child
Why was I born?

I am a child
Filled with numbing hate
My body screams from pain
My mind cries as well

I am a child
Told that I am liar
And forgotten always
The loneliness eats me alive

I am just a child
Living in a world I did not create
Becoming something I do not desire
From the hands that should have helped me
