Take Me To The Hospital - Poem by Karoliena Somura

The weight put on my back
Is causing my spine to crack,
The tears I bleed everynight
Is not a pretty sight.
The school to where I go
Is a place where people know
The energy used to get up everyday
Is making me tired in every single way.

The bruises and scars make me lonely,
I need someone to hold me.
The beatings and numb feeling is a scary ride,
I need somebody by my side.
The thoughts and shocks make me space,
I need someone to keep me in place.
The responsibilities I hold is a tough road,
I need somebody to share the load.

The seventeen years have gone by,
And alone I'm still alive.
The years are held together with fear,
And still, for family I am here.
The day will come for my revelation,
And maybe solve this situation.
The time will come in 365 days,
And till that day I will stay.

The problem is some things can't wait,
Please, heal the injuries in my current state.
The problem persists there in my occipital,
Please, I'm sorry, but take me to the hospital.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

My dad beat me bad this summer. He first punched my face which caused me to fall to the floor and I crawled toward the dresser where he took his foot and slammed it down the right side of my head to where my head hit the wooden floor. He stomped his foot down in the same position over and over again, until his knee started hurting which caused him to stop. This was a couple months ago, but the headaches havent gone away. Its not as bad as it was the first two weeks after it happened, but the aches are still there in the same places. It keeps me up at night, and Im starting to have a harder time in school and Im starting to forget many things. For example, the first week I went back to school, I forgot how to spell my name and where the gym was. Im a junior, I should know where that is. But those are just minor factors, I don't know what else might be wrong with me, but all I know is that it's done weird things to me. I dont know if its a physical injury or a mental injury, but I just know that I need to get checked out at the hospital. My family has been avoiding it because, if I go then I have to tell the doctor how I have these headaches. But my mom said she'll finally take me on a day when my dads at school(finally getting his degree) and when I come up with a story. I did, Im just gona say my nonexistant boyfriend did it haha. Understand, my moms in a tight spot too, shes scared of my dad just as much as I am, and shes been through alot too. Its a very complicated situation, so please don't judge and just enjoy the poems, they are what keeps me somewhat sane.

    I really like to read your work for you write so well. Yet I feel such terrible pain for you. To live like this is just so wrong you have so much strength yet home, you do not belong. It is not a home. Take good care. (Report) Reply
