Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Rating: 4.1

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
I think dad's in a bar,
If that's true then he'll be high,
And maybe just want me to die.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
I can hear the screech of dad's car,
I'm a man, I won't cry,
But although I'm just 8, I want to die.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
An 8 year old boy's version of 'twinkle, twinkle, little star'. It's tragic and dark, that I know, but maybe there are people out there who feel like this. Maybe... just maybe... I do too. And if that IS true... then I would have found help by now... right? All I hope for is that other victims of abuse have found help... too.

Thank you for being a voice for those whom are by fear afraid to talk, when I was 8 and younger my father would be in a bar drunk and playing pool while me and my brother would sit for hours outside the bar in the car, he would bring a coke out for us and many times when we had to use the bathroom, we would pee in the bottles and pour it out the window.....this was many years ago, no child should go through things such as these, again, thank you for posting your poetry for the children.
