I wrote this poem when i was thinking about what i wanted to major in when i get to college. I've heard so many sad stories like Jaycee Lee Dugard and Elizabeth Smart but also the stories of the voices who have not been heard

I don't understand why there is abuse 
Why words can hurt more than actions 
Why the news doesn't cover all abuse cases

But most of all 
Why the victims stay quiet 
Why some people don't help 
Why some people would hit a child 

What i understand is 
Why there are places out there that do help 
Why there is foster care 
Why i want to work for the department of children and family services or the national department of missing and exploited children
