These small hands
Will protect you
Like a son protects
His mother
His siblings
These skinny hands
Will protect you


From his abusive words
From his flying fists
From his evil temper
These punny hands
Will protect you
They will shield you
And keep you safe
From his filthy groping hands
These dainty hands
Will always protect you
They will hold you
And comfort you
Wipe all your tears
These are only
Small hands
Of a small boy
But my responsibility
Is to protect you
But with these skinny hands
I cover my face and cry
As daddy’s hard blows
Strike my mother
I wonder…what have I done to upset daddy?
