Life With No Bail - Poem by molly rangles

by the look on her face
she looks so confused
you would of never guessed
that she was once abused

from the image her parents had gave
no one would of guessed
she got beaten when she didnt behave

days go by and bruises fade
but new ones come that are freshly made

caregivers think but dont bother to ask
when they see the parents they smile as if they had on a mask

the little girl asks every time their hand is layed
why do you do this to me when i misbehaves

they look at me and smile and say because they love me
however she knows they'd be happy without me

the look in her eyes you cant bare to stand
all she had longed for was to ne loved with open hands

then one day was the last straw for her dad
for spilling her cup, it had made him oh so mad

he beat her and beat her for the last time to misbehave
the picture was poseted on her grave

as the service was held and everyone gathered
not a face was dry all so weathered

we all remember her still today as her parents sit in jail
and we thank and praise the judge who orered life with no bail...
