A child cries out, "Mommy, please don't hurt me."
Another pleads, "Daddy, please, I don't want to."
Desperate tears flow,
and the tiny voices creep out
Deep from within their souls,
comes innocence
A fait weeping from a dark corner
Small, watering eyes ask, "Will you help me?"
One saved, so many more lost
Who will answer the cries of the night when the voices are silent?
