WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT?

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT?

A Poem by CAPOLAVORO
"

This is something for the perpetrators side.

"
What are you looking at?
You want to see how I hit this brat?
You see he behaves like a wild pig
Can't sit and always say I want to pee
Crying all the time
Sayin'  I wan't this and that mommy
Crazy
I am definitely gettin' dizzy
No food to eat and no money on my pocket
How could he not understand
Damn
This child is a headache
I start pinching him and kicking
Watch now as I hit him with a stick
Now he's cryin'
Noise noise noise
Do me a favor stop yelling
Telling
It's not my right to hit my child
Who then would discipline him?
Feeling
Numbness, Senseless, Frozen
all the doors and windows are locked
so no one could see the torture
He's shouting
Slap hit
Slap hit
That is what I do to him
When I'm hungry and he's cryin'
You lemme see child abuse
Now I let you see poverty
Don't just stare at me
You are of no use!

What are you looking at?
You want to see how I molest a daughter?
You see she behaved like a w***e
Wearing revealing clothes to me
Lookin' good in my eyes
Sayin' thank you for being a good father daddy
Craving
Selling drugs is the only way for living
No food to eat and no money on my pocket
How could I resist this feeling
Damn
This life is a mess
I started usin' killin' and fighting
Go home hit my daughter
found her crying
Sexin'
Keep on doing the same thing to her
over and over again
Noise noise noise
Do me a favor stop yelling
Telling
It's not my right to sexually abused my child
Who then would use her?
Feeling
Numbness, Senseless, Frozen
all the doors and windows are locked
so no one could see the torture
She's shouting
Slap hit
Slap hit
That is what I do to her
When I use drugs and she's cryin'
You lemme see sexual abuse
Now I let you see poverty
Don't just stare at me
You are of no use!

Author's Note

CAPOLAVORO
I just want you to understand that if we really do want to help someone from abuse we need not to only stare. Others want to end abuse but what they do is just stare. Not really helping. File a case, refer the child to a child caring institution, report the abuse, file a blotter report to the police, be an instrument for awareness, shout if you have to, help people in poverty. DO SOMETHING.

This is a very powerful message, but I'm not sure it comes across as being very sympathetic to either side of such abuse situations. This isn't a drawback, becuz your message is still very thought-provoking & meaningful . . . not condemning, but just not sympathetic either. Just laying it out there as it can sometimes be, both sides looking ugly & inconceivable, not whitewashing anything. I like the jagged way you spit out the various words & short phrases with dynamic verbs & feelings, it gets across your sensations of a person so overwhelmed or frustrated that they're sputtering out their venom or hopelessness. All that construction & word choice stuff is so well done here to show instead of tell. This is the poster child for show instead of tell. I'm a child of many years of constant abuse, both sexual & violence, so I can say that I embrace all aspects of the childhood that formed me into who I am. This should be accepted by all & your poem definitely gets this across strongly (((HUGS)))

Written in the irresponsible parents' point of view. They could make excuses all they want but still, there's no excuse in abusing your children. It's not your children's fault, it's not the people's fault. It's your fault.
I do get the author's point that we should not just "stare" at these children. They need our help. We NEED to do something.

Hi. I was browsing and came upon this. As others have said, you have written a really powerful angry piece. I haven't (yet) looked at your other work but this is remarkable. As you say, people may see but not report or intervene. You may be interested to know that there's a training scheme rolling out in some parts of UK for cab drivers because they see a lot and don't always know when or how to do something.

The sad reality is that no matter the problem or how big the problem is very few people will do something. They see many events go down: abuse, murder, rape, molestation, and worst but will still do nothing about it. The world is broken and this is one of the main reasons why. People will sit and watch but will not do.

A sad reality.
Poverty , however is no excuse to carry out child abuse.
Your authors note is very correct as well. Action should be taken against these people.

People sometime are useless and helpless, we are all of the same and we need to help each other no matter who we are helping it doesnt matter, dont just stand and stare at the situation, get your a*s up and do something about it, what id it happened to you? wouldnt you want someone to help out?

Great work, keep it up.

thank you ! and you`re welcome
Deep! Great words used to make it a satire depicting the issues of society... Not all have such ability. The poem grips the heart and really pulls us inside the poem to such an extent to stop the wrong.. Well done! Great write ... All the best
