If only they both had looked inside my eyes, to see the look of sadness that was there. As I look back on this now, I have an understanding about why I may have been so solemn and quiet. How many other children have this same feeling inside of them? How many eyes are being ignored? How many parents are not seeing the signs of a child being abused? It hurts me to see that so many little ones are going through this, are being ignored or told to just get over feelings that make them sad. No child should be ignored, no child should feel sad, scared to tell. But when they are ignored at home, why would they bother to tell? I didn’t, I felt often times abandoned, that my feelings never mattered. But a child’s feelings matter just as much as an adults…..Because as they grow up, all the hurt feelings build up causing so many other ailments, depression can set in if it already hasn’t. Suicide, because they feel no one hears them.. Please, look into the eyes of a little child, before it’s too late. Their eyes tell a story~ Will YOU be there for them?
