"Hush Little Baby Dont Say A Word"
Shrouded in a Life of Secrecy
What's your sexual Orientation
Geared from Infancy
We learned to avoid
Don't ask Don't tell
Where did you get those bruises
Keep your home and your business to yourself
I fell I walked into a door
Cover up those bruises with makeup
Pile it on
Your once beautiful skin holds battle scars
No one can see the "shiner" if you apply it just so
Just say no
If you tell your Father or your Mother
I'll hurt them too
I know where you live
And your School I'll peruse
Hear and Blind see and deaf
Shrouded in secrecy for all to see
But no one dares see with the eyes of truth
We are all too busy living a lie
"See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil"
When that first needle found the vein
You walked the street a two dollar hustler
getting your next fix to hide the shame
No one cares to see so you hide
The bruises and the scars
Don't ask, don't tell
Is it working yet
Hear and blind see and deaf is a Jamaican saying I wrote this prose in 2011, I was on bedrest watching Law and order re-runs. It occurred to me that although some secrets are not necessarily bad. There are others that need to be told and should be reported to ensure the safety and health of our Children, we have to as Adults give them a voice.
