She stands alone
Attacked and ambushed by you grownups,
No one hears her voice,
Not a listening soul.

She calls for aid-
But all are deaf.
One blocked minded group
And she is all alone.

I am her (almost) only refuge
But my hands are chained-
Can do nothing, only from afar-
Broken hearted I stand.

She reasons well,
She has her say
Though you don't let her
She's your prey.

If you could only hear
The soft, begging voice (of heart)
You will all rejoice
At a new start.
