Hear my cry
I cry as a toddler looking for her mom to help her
I cry like a child with an empty stomach
I cry with tears of sadness
I cry for peace at my home like inside my mom’s womb
I’m tired of seeing a man beat mother in front of me
My mom is as useless a thing as me, I’m nothing
My dad practiced musango with our body
My dad is John Cena at house
My mom doesn’t have voice to scream for help
My mom believes the secret
I fear the secret will kill her
Always I cry for help
Always my body is beaten by a man I called my dad
I cry
Help me
