Neglected

As he makes his way up the front steps and through the front door

He can smell the strong essence of smoke coming from the kitchen

Knowing what he’s about to see, he slowly walks into the room

Sure enough there is his mum smoking…

Again

 

She sees him and screams, telling him to get out of the room

He sees a letter lying on his bed; it’s from his dad

He knows this because he can see the prison stamp in the top corner

He is writing to apologize to him…

Again

 

If only he could talk to someone, instead of sitting in his room alone

All he needs is a helping hand

But every time he tries to escape from his nightmare he fails

Neglected by society and his family…

Again

 

I no I can make a difference by raising my voice and giving him the helping hand he needs

    I like the use of again.
    Its nice knowing that people are protesting against neglected people that are neglected even though its not their fault.
    The poem would be nicer if it rhymed.
