Do We Give Up?

Do we give up on a boy that’s only seven years old?

 

Little feet stomping and a frown on his face

Fists clenched, papers ripped and thrown into space

“You’re mean”

“I hate you” screamed and shouted so loud

 

A young child, only seven

But has seen more than I

Hurting

Angry

Hating himself

 

How do I help him

Find the beautiful boy still inside

Clever

Curious

A Good Boy and Bold

 

How does he fight against what he’s been told

You’re Ugly, Stupid and Bad to the bone

And become what he’s meant to be

A Leader

with intelligence and kindness not cold

 

He needs someone to tell him and fight for his rights,

to give him the chance to know that he can be good

 

Do we give up on a boy that is only seven years old?
