I wont tell

I won’t tell
What you done to mommy
Please don’t yell
I won’t tell
How she fell
You can trust in me	
I won’t tell
What you done to mommy

    You can feel the fear, trying to negotiate a way out. Powerful.

    The simple words you've used to express such a serious message made it all the more sad. I wonder what will become of the child... and of course the mom. Good work anyhow...
