  I am small, small I am.
But the pain still hurts.

I got injuries, deep inside, that can’t be proven,
But the scars are still there.

I got scars on the outside,
But made to tell, “I got them from falling down.”

I get whipped, by a twig or fist,
But it does not matter because it all hurts.

I’ve tried to get help from different people,
But still cannot find the help I need.

I want help, so I can help others,
Because, it should not hurt, to be a kid

I am small, small I am.
But the pain still hurts in the end.

I'm thinking, from the date, that this is you. If so, I'm so sorry and so glad that you're here to tell. It means that you made it out...
