Best Poem of octavia wilson

Hush Little Sister

Hush, little sister
Please don't cry
I wish I could be there
To sing you a lullaby
I can see your arms
Bloodied and bruised
That's strange, little sister
Mine were like that too
I know you scream
When Daddy's there
Hush, little sister
I know you're scared
I can see the way
He's hurting you
I'm sorry, little sister
He did that to me too
I know that people
Ignore what's going on at home
That makes me angry, little sister
You shouldn't have to be alone
Hey, little sister
You want to know why I'm not there?
It's a sad story, little...

Read the full of Hush Little Sister


As I'm sitting here with my mind in a daze,
Im wondering is this the day that i should die or just fly high
and keep fighting off these huge boulders sitting on my shoulders.
What do you do when someone you love is hurting you,
But you don't wanna say something that might push them away?
How do you convience someone you love to stay around,
When their lover keeps constantly putting them down?
What do you say to make your little sister want to stay?
