Innocence Taken

Innocence lost so long ago
Childhood taken, she’s forced to grow
So much expected of that little child
So many burdens on her shoulders piled
Watching others as they laugh and play
And yet within these walls she must stay
What is the cost of stealing her youth
Those did this will not see the truth
So wrapped up in their own little lives
Ignoring how her spirit now strives
They don’t see the battle she fights
For her sanity in these nights
