Abuse - Poem by Courtney Welden

Am I a bad girl
If not
then why is he beating me
What did I do

To deserve this
If nothing
Then why is he touching me like this
I am only six years old

What am I suppose to do
I can't fight back
I am to weak
Now I am sixteen years old

And I am ready
To speak up
About my abuse
And I am ready
To fight back.
