Protect me Teddy

You  know all the answers Teddy  but you never tell me the questions

I am not happy here Teddy, have you any good suggestions.

Why do mummy  and daddy go out so such

Leaving us  with Uncle Joe …. he smells and I hate his touch.

 

Sitting here Teddy, sipping tea by  candle light I feel so unsure.

I love being here Teddy just me and you together here sitting on the floor.

I can hear him moving around downstairs, what shall we do if he knocks on our door.

Shall we go to bed Teddy and pretend we are asleep,we could hide under the sheets.

 

I don’t like him Teddy he hurts me so,

I can’t tell anyone, he says mummy  and Daddy don’t need to know.

He calls me his little pleasure angel his cuddly ball of joy

I don’t like those names, I hate his games and  I do not like his” toy.”

 

Time for us to go to bed Teddy, time for us to sleep.

I shall cuddle you Teddy , please protect me if into this room he creeps.

I have  got the bread knife , I know to use it,I am not allowed

But, Teddy I hate his games so I shall cut his “Toy” off as it stands out proud.

    What powerful imagery. Using the conversation with Teddy to share her story and her plan is brilliant. You take a tough topic and bring it into the open, while empowering her to think for herself in an awful situation. Kudos!

      Thank you Deborah this is a subject I have tackled before , I find it best to just go for the point no point in covering it up sadly it is a sad, sad fact that bad things happen!
      Thank you for the encouragement XXX
