Indelible Wounds

All it takes is a witness.

A boy whose eyes are meant for innocence.

With the sight of violence,

youth becomes buried in this darkness.

 

The consequence is the crying,

the anxiety,

the unfaltering memory.

It is He who commits the beatings.

 

The boy sits and the boy looks.

It is He who is careless.

The boy is so fragile.

But He is so ruthless.

 

It is He the boy remembers.

A witness—always.
