little johnathan

My name is little Jonathan, I am old 4 years old 

My daddy never loved me; my mummy’s hugs are cold 

My sister is always screaming, she sometimes don’t come home 

When mummy and daddy both go out, I’m left here on my own 

My name is little Jonathan, I’m 7 years old today

My skin has purple blotches, that won’t go away

Daddy is always angry; he comes home late at night

I hear mummy and daddy rowing, that then turns to a fight 

My name is little Jonathan and now I’m almost eight

My body is so scrawny, because I haven’t ate

The kids at school make fun of me, because of my dirty clothes 

I’m use to taking the punches now; I’m use to blocking the blows

My name is little Jonathan, and soon I will be nine

A lady came to my school one day and said it will be fine

I do not live with mummy now, I live with someone new

I have some really lovely clothes, my body’s better too

I’m told what mummy and daddy done, was wrong, Thiers no excuse

A child cannot defend themselves, defend themself from child abuse

    Great topic chosen..This needs to be talked about and written about so that more people will be observant and report child abuse or what they think could be child abuse..The other day, I was waiting and I saw this woman start to talk to a child in a truck next to me..I had not noticed the child in the truck..The window was down and the woman talked to the child then she got in the vehicle with him or her..When the parent came out of the store the woman got out..Sara
