ADVICE FOR KIDS
If someone is touching you in places that you do not like, tell a grown up person such as a teacher, a policeman or policewoman or a grown up person you trust.
If a person is hurting you in ways that you think are wrong, tell a grown up person such as a teacher, a policeman or policewoman or a grown up person you trust.
If people are bullying you, tell a grown up person such as a teacher, a policeman or policewoman or a grown up person you trust.
If you know a friend who is having any of these things done to them, tell them to tell a grown up person such as a teacher, a policeman or policewoman or a grown up person they trust.
If someone is doing these things to you, you are not the one that is being bad and you should not get into trouble when you tell a grown up person you can trust.



YOU COULD GET BURNT

Why do you look so sad
No smile on your face
Things cannot
Be that bad
You tell me you don’t
Ever want to go home
My dear you cannot walk
The streets and roam
Your parents would be
Worried about you
And hurt that you
Cannot tell them what
You’re going through
You say they will
Kick you out anyway
And you’re too scared
To go on home
Being out here
Late at night
Is not safe
When you’re alone
If you cannot go home
Then go to the police
They will find you
Somewhere at least
Whatever the problem
It can be, sorted out
You need to talk it over
Trust someone
Without a doubt
Trusting people
Is hard when
You’ve been hurt
Running away
You could get burnt
Talk it over
With someone
You can trust
Don’t be in a rush
Think before your actions
Your parents may give
A better reaction

GOD HAS HEARD OUR CRIES

Darkness fills our home
We hate being there
Now we go out and roam
The evil presence we feel
We know it’s not
God’s will
Our home should
Be filled with love
But we feel dirty
Like a covering of mud
God has heard our cries
And brought us
A special guy
He wants to be
Our dad
Oh boy we are so glad
God is working
In our mum
She is awesome
And can be
So much fun
Help us to pray
This evil
Presence away
We don’t want
Our mum to
Be used anymore
In our home
It’s just like a war
We keep praying
This evil
Out of the door
Our mum is
So special
And we want
Her safe
Lord
Please help us
And restore
Her faith

NIGHTMARE OF A CHILD

Mummy I am so frightened, please don’t me leave me alone here
I’m so scared, he drinks beer, and I don’t want him near
I don’t want to go to bed, he hurts me and I cry in pain
Please tell him to go; I know I will get the blame
If I hide under my bed, he may not find me
It’s so dark in my room, I cannot see
Look at those shadows, they look like his shape
They look so big, just like an ape
What’s that sound, I hear him coming?
Please help somebody, where is my mummy
Your hands are so big; let me go, leave me be
Oh please go away, and don’t touch me
My hands are shaking and I feel so hot
Golly my tummy hurts; it feels like knots
She doesn’t believe me when I try to tell her
And tells me I’m a liar and not to stir
I get into trouble for telling the truth
He smacked me in the mouth and hurt my tooth
This is a nightmare, it happens every day
I cry myself to sleep; I wish he would go away
