Abused - Poem by Ranock Saing
It wasn’t easy coming here
I had to shed my tears
Left everything behind
Even my friends but then I didn’t mind
The only person that came was dad
mom and sisters couldn't come
At first I was mad
Then I just let it go
But you have to understand I was only 8 also
Surroundings were such a blur
No, I had no pleasure
You were 11
Ever since we met, we weren’t even friends
After dad leaving me here, you abused me
Leaving scars all over my body that will stay eternally
Hurting me, what did you get out it?
Now I hate you
The biggest one was my shoulders
Are you happy now to be the beholder?
Of this pain and anger
It would be better if you were a stranger
Yet you’re not, that’s what hurts the most
And you keep coming so close
After all ten years, I remember everything
When I see you, I might not say a word
Deep down, I’m killing myself slowly
Do you remember the blow dryer cord?
Because I remember it all
How about the tub that was filled with cold water
That nearly drowned me to death
Those times I cried for you to stop
Why didn’t you
How about those times you would make me roll down the stairs
Or simply forcing me to eat the hot spaghetti?
What were your reasons?
I don’t understand you
It’s all in my head
Playing over and over
Andrew, do you remember what happened at his house?
When I cried, you would just laugh
How could you strip me?
Making me stand there all exposed
And exposing me other times too
Or at the park
The swings, chasing after you
Instead you would leave me
Coming home at day, you hit me with your keys
My head bleed
Abused over and over again
Do you remember?
Because I do
And it’s hurting me everyday
It’s painful to see your face
It’s painful to know that I was abused
