We all must help if we are to end Child Abuse. No child should have to be afraid in their own homes
A little boy of two or three, with bruises on his face
And, as I pulled the cover down, I saw bruises every place.
His little hands were blistered; with some burns from something round
His wrists were cut and blistered, looking like he had been bound.
"Child abuse at father's hands," was what the ticket said.
Cause of death? "severe and repeated blows right to the head."
How on earth is this allowed? I thought I'd seen it all.
How can someone beat to death, a child that is so small?.
That is why I join their fight.
Because I know that even three year olds have rights.
