Behind Every Smile (Stop Child Abuse)

The Lonely Author


Behind Every Smile


There’s an untold story

behind every smile.

Such is life when you reside

in an abusement park.

He experienced a world of horror

where banners are always

black and blue.

A world of stolen laughter

where happy days were

far and few.

A never ending ride

where childhood was lost

like a treasured toy

never to be found.

Everything is lost riding

this sadistic merry go round.

He was a victim,

bullied and beaten,

until only one thing remained

inside his fragile fractured shell.



Child abuse. Silence is never the answer.
