Another One Lord

Another one Lord.

Another one covered in cuts

All stages of bruising

Crusted over with filth

Timid…

Trembling…

Hair matted…

Eyes widened in surprise…

Haunted by memories

No one can ever know.

 

Another one Lord

Another one covered in burns

Almost sixty percent

Oozing and infected

Timid…

Trembling…

Voice silenced…

Eyes haunted by horrors…

Afraid of rescue

No one can ever know.

 

Another one Lord

Another one’s head hung down

Always hearing they’re worthless

They are a burden by living

Timid…

Trembling…

Hopeless…

Locked away inside themselves…

Beaten by words echoing

No one can ever know.

 

Another one Lord

Another one locked in a cage

Another one forgotten

Whereabouts unquestioned

Timid…

Trembling…

Broken…

Afraid of kind human touch…

Shattered by violence

No one can ever know.

 

Another one Lord

Another one shaken

Anger aimed and received

For a whimper a cry

Still…

Silent…

Lifeless…

Unable to respond anymore…

Head smashed neck broken

No one can ever know.

 

Another one Lord

Another one defiant

Amazed they are charged

Denial of there being any abuse

Crying…

Angry…

Pleading…

Surely the court can understand…

They themselves abused

No one can ever know.

 

Another one Lord

Another one for You

A mess of wickedness

Or mental illness or addiction

Can’t explain…

Doesn’t understand…

Control gone…

Their crime unintentional…

Pressured they snapped

Only You can know.

 

Another one Lord

Another one for You to judge

Regardless of man’s decision

Despite any legal mumbo jumbo

Truth…

Absolute…

Clear…

They will stand before You…

As will we all

Only You can know.

 

Another one Lord

Another one who will bow

Trembling in Your presence

Mankind’s thoughts and laws

Unimportant…

Non-applicable…

Not needed…

They will hear from You…

All of us not to hear

Your judgment for child abusers.
