Abuse - Poem by Shastina McElmurry

She is living her life black and blue.
After all drinking and drugs she asks god what to do.
One night she decides to pack up and go.
She sneeks out the window to what place she dont know.
She hates her life and her parents to.
Just if she knew what to do.
After a night on the streets.
Guess who she meets.
Her parents grab her and put her in the car.
They said we knew she would'nt go far.
They take her home and beat her to death.
Then she takes one last breath asking god to take her away.
Thats how she went to heaven with the angels that very day.

When I wrote this I was thinking about all the abused kids out their i feel very sorry for them and the pain they exprience. p: s this is not about me.

    This is very amazing, I do have friends who have this problem, and this sort of thing happens to them, I feel sorry for anyone who has to go through this. Very good way of capturing the way they feel. (Report) Reply
