Abuse - Poem by joe foster

Evidence of pain,
as you hear her cry your name.
theirs nothing you can do,
he hurt you too.
You yell,
Leave my mom alone!
he hits her again and again,
its so wrong,
but normal for him.
lets just leave you say,
theirs no where to go.
cards you were dealt,
the wounds heal slow.
a life you don't want,
you cry and fight back.
its no use.
its a life of pain,
and normal abuse.
you become use to it,
not knowing another way,
becoming his prey,
to fight another day.
