Why should a child be left behind?
Left behind to try and fight
My niece is small but oh so smart
But they want to send her back
She is kind and so very wise
But is afraid to stand and say
I am smart, I want to stay
Abused by her father
Broken down by the parent that should have protected her
And now, I her aunt am here to say fathers like that
Should die today!
My niece is small and afraid of all ‘cause one who should
Have held her dear took away her innocence.
I will stand and fight for her.
I will hold her so very near and never let her shed a lonely tear again
