Baby Beaten

When you beat a child,
what goes in your mind?
Can you raise your hand,
can you pause and rewind?


“I hate this kid”
You think in rage.
Can you pause right there!
Please write it on a page.

It’s a baby with eyes,
of hope and dreams.
A baby with hands,
to hold the reins.

Of its own future,
its own life.
A right to smile,
a right to survive.

You strip it off those,
you push, shove, burn.
You take something.
that you can’t return.


So when you beat a child,
to death…
What goes on in your mind?
