Women's Aid Listening to Children Campaign
Written and presented by Kidz Krew,
Newham Council's Advisory Board to the Children's Fund
Hear the voices of the children, the messages on the postcard ask for justice, understanding and recognition.
Teach us that although bad things may happen that in our leaders we can hope and believe that change will come.
Respect us - we are future adults, help us to grow into greatness in a world where our homes and communities represent the place that we are safe.
Help us to break the silence so that our mothers and fathers can learn to love themselves and enjoy their healing.
Remember, all that evil needs to succeed is for good people to stay in posh rooms talking in meetings and never taking action.
Remember their children.

I don't know why parents do this,
It is so cruel and heartless, I don't think they know,
What they do to us,
How it affects us,
I don't like it 'coz it makes me cry,
I don't know why he does it,
And then mum lies,
To cover the pain she is feeling,
I want it to stop and it will stop,
Sooner rather than later,
'coz I don't want to grow up a hater.
