Bringing abuse out to open speaking the truth has a high cost that is too much to bear

The wind howls

The earth opens

Swallowing truth

A child'S cries for her mother

Lost in the wind

Why was it so

Preferred to not know

Betrayal too painful

What for to experience

How can a child be safe

Truth not enough

Truth believe important

Warrior Angel required

Alone truth destroys

Knowing reality

No parent to make proud now

Settled for illusion it was

Truth has cost child too

The power is with lies

Yet to lie is to not be true

So I stay true

as I am devoured slowly painfully alive

It’s said truth always comes out

Whats not said is when

How many countless abused disbelieved souls

Have died all alone from their pain before then

The wind stops howling

A child still cries for her mother

In vain

The child's cries are in vain
