Crying for the Little Child


Who Will Cry?

Who will cry
for the little child
that lives inside
Of Me?
Who will cry for the little child
dying to be set free?
Who will cry for the little child
wounded continuously?
I will cry for the little child,
For that little child
is Me

By Tremayne Moore
Child Sexual Abuse Advocate
Author of Deaf, Dumb, Blind & Stupid


I just finished reading Deaf, Dumb, Blind & Stupid: Michael Anderson's Fight For Life,  By Tremayne Moore.  The book starts out with this poem Who Will Cry?...  I met Tremayne on Twitter @Mayntre, and started reading his blog MayneMan.BlogSpot.com .  On his blog I found many posts talking about religion and abuse.  Like his blog this book takes a detailed look into how people in church respond to abuse.  In the book Michael Anderson's Pastor is the example of a good response to abuse.  Unfortunately, it seems everyone else around Michael  are examples of poor responses to abuse.  This book was a refreshing and real look into improper religious responses, along with many other insights into the effects and realities of abuse.
