You Weren’t There

What I journeyed through in that house on Sherman Street,
I progressed through alone.
You weren’t present at my hearing;
None of you were in that courtroom.

Yes, you apparently would have
handled things differently,
who knows if you were around!
No mommy and daddy, that was my reality.

Nobody can tell me how to react.
My family was not around; that much is accurate.
Me -an innocent child vs. wolves in sheep’s clothing,
that nightmare became my daily struggle
