Ghost, he must be…

 
Broken nibs,
Stolen pencils,
Sneaking chocolates,
Screams for ice creams,
These were all-
The troubles she knew.

Until that day,
When he came.
Her dad’s dear friend,
He did things new.
It was unlike,
The warmth she knew.

She cried for reasons,
None understood.
Had those fevers,
No drugs cured.
Mighty night mares,
Hugs couldn’t help.

Ghost ,he must be!’,
She told herself.
All she knew was,
She should hide…
Every time,
A visitor came…

Child abuse is not uncommon. It is just not talked much about. Let us be cautious to prevent it. Let us keep our eyes open not to miss it. We can always choose to be in denial, but that never helps the world. Consider the possibility when a child seems shaken. They need help!

Thank you for reading…
