I had put a child to sleep
a voiceless tortured child
and very wounded too

I felt I was doing a good thing
I had put this child to sleep
to put her mind at ease

This child had been put
Through so much
Pain too much to bear

I didn’t cradle this child
I didn’t hold this child
I just let this child fall to sleep

No blankie to hold
No teddy to hug
The child was on her own

Like a negligent mother
I threw her in a room
And slammed the door shut

Sleep now I’m too busy
I was too busy for her now
I had a life to live now

I’m the child I speak of
The child is my pain I speak of
All tucked away from me

That pain was never cared for
Never nurtured or caressed
Still left and abandoned

Success shows how much
I have healed on the outside
But what about the inside
