broken trust

authority figures
teachers, bosses, adults, parents

ignore my cries
please, they hurt me at home, please.
no, they don’t, child, you are delusional.

ignore my bruises
my eye – it hurts – it’s black and mottled green
you fell, you clumsy child.

ignore my sadness
i’m drowning. please, i need help. please.
do you want attention that bad, child?

ignore me
i am a person, a solid child, still growing. solid as the trees. solid as you. alive.
there is a ghost haunting me in the corner. i banish it away, pesky thing.

please.
