Silent Pain 

How can you live with yourself,
Knowing what innocence you stole.
An already broken child,
Who was barely 12 years old.
She tried so hard to reach out,
But her cries fell on deaf ears.
To this day those scars stay close,
She is never far from tears.
Struggling in silent pain,
She prays to fall asleep tonight.
As dawn approaches closer,
She finds peace in the sunrise.
