Why Daddy Why? - Poem by mikayla sall

Why daddy why?
Was I not pretty?
Was I not good enough?
Why daddy why?
Why was I forced to cry?
You hurt me and beat me.
And then just leave me.
You got away
And I cannot stand it
Every time I walk down the sidewalk
I have to look behind me
And be careful of people.
Why daddy why?
Why did you hurt me?
Why did you get away with it?
Abusing kids is like taking their future away from them
Their only kids and should be
Aloud to be kids
When you hurt me you took away my future
And now I’m here to say thanks
I’ve gone through a lot
And now I know
That there is a lot of people out there
Like you and now I know that.
