Title

don't fucking stand there!
don't tell me this is normal
your hurt, bleeding
you take it like a good girl should!
but, do pray tell,
What did you do?
what penance is this?
for big brother God up there?
he does not exist!
now tell me, what punishment do they give?
if i were you i'd scream.
tell, tell on them!
but, wait...
I am you
I am bleeding
I am hurt
I cannot speak
I cannot think
i..
I am weak like they tell me
I am a filth ridden creature
like they tell me
I am..I am..
I AM HERE!
yeah, that punch bag
that'd be me!
YOUR DAUGHTER
YOUR SISTER
I AM EVERY FEAR YOU HAVE
but i will take my beatings,
because i cannot speak.
i cannot scream
i cannot
i just can't
so God, where's my damn saviour! ! ! !
