Lament of the Inner Child (Introduction)
Still, even after many years a child can still feel the fear that comes from being emotionally, mentally, and physically abused. The unceasing cry of the inner child was and is always with them, and a sense of distrust follows the child everywhere it goes.
Why, couldn't the child just have been loved and not persecuted like a common criminal? Is it because an adult feels so powerless in life, that in their rage they feel the need to punish and dominate a child?
Why, must some children be favored and loved, while others are scorned and forsaken, then left to wallow in the self-hate that comes from the destruction of their self esteem?
The unceasing cry which arises from an abused child, never goes away. It only simmers beneath an ocean of inner turmoil. Afterward, whenever hate happens to rear its ugly head, the torment and abuse become a torrent of pain which rains down in hellish vengeance upon the child's gentle spirit.
So a child's silent cry becomes a tragic lament, which is heard only within the heart and mind of the child. A lament so profound, and sad, that it slowly destroys the spirit of the child which is targeted by the hate and senselessness of the abuser!
Lament of the Inner Child (poem)
I am here in the darkness.
I cry out but you never listen.
I ask for your love,
but you never share.
My soul has become a
tapestry of pain.
My life, a testament
to your hate.
My cry is heard by angels,
whom lower their heads,
Open the ears of your heart,
that you may hear.
For tomorrow may be,
For my lament will always,
be of pain. Until you learn,
that love, is the only way!
