I see the fear in their eyes being accompanied with their confusion
you can see bruises in their eyes
because they can't show up on their skin
even though they won't believe a kid
I can see flesh under their nails
from trying to say no
and even if you cant see it in the young
You see it in the "care"
their proud posture
the chilling stilling of their hands
when they strike
the world just sees it as discipline
what did the kids do wrong?
