My Early Childhood - Poem by Patience Connelley

My sister had a prolbem
So she was sent away
The thing she did she was never sorry
And she said that she would come back someday
I didn't need her or want her
I was glad to see her leave
But I knew it was a lie
And decided not to believe
Because she like to hurt me
And sometimes my brother too
But he didn't say anything
So there was nothing I could do
When my sister was around
All my mom and her would do was fight
That night she call and said
That she was coming home tonight
She will never change
She will always be that way
Lying to mom at night
And hurting my bother during the day
I wish she would stay away
I never wanted her to come home
That day mom have to go to work

Me and my sister would be alone

I heard her voice and closed the door
And grabbed a bear
I hid up on the bunk bed
I thought she wouldn't find me there
I was 9 years old
But I was old enough to see
That my sister wasn't
What sisters were suppose to be
She would lie to me
And hurt me continously
I will never forgive her
For the way she treated me
One day when mom came home from work
And saw police from afar
Scared, she searched for me
And found me in the back of a squad ca
She talked to the policeman
And began to cry more
She hugged me tight and realized
That I wasn't hers anymore
My sister called 911
They came and took me away
I still hate myself now
For thinking that things would be ok
She finally kept her promise to take me away
How could my family be so wrong
It's just so sad that my mom waited
Til I was long gone.
