Stop the abuse!

Having been manipulated and hurt in the ABUNDANCE of her IMPORTANCE
She has become tough and resistive; seeking ARROGANCE out of ANNOYANCE
To violate the girl-child is to tamper with the ESSENCE of her INNOCENCE
She’d never be the same…a seed has been sown; a DEVIL has created EVIL

There’d be two options…like the play script of an INTROVERT or EXTROVERT
The first has withdrawn; probably the case of a PERVERT that may REVERT
The other has unleashed; unnoticeably coming in SILENCE but certainly not ABSENCE
Except with intervention, it’d be unbearably harsh, the CONTENT of her PRESENT

I’m calling on governments, bodies…every INSTITUTION and ORGANIZATION
Individuals not left out; let’s embark on this MISSION for the global NATION
Everyone should be involved…not in your WAY doesn’t mean too far AWAY
When it strikes your neighbour, seek for BROTHERHOOD, for evil is in the NEIGHBOURHOOD

Life plays out as a game of choice…it’s either within your REACH or your BREACH
‘Do as you want done to you’…isn’t it what we TEACH and what we PREACH
Beyond the girl, every child should be your child to TAKE and to MAKE
Let’s not destroy the FUTURE; let our NATURE show that we are MATURE. STOP THE ABUSE!
