THE WORDS FROM AN ABUSED CHILD
I insist that you listen to me
I insist you say please.
I insist that your grades be A’s
I insist you behave every day.
I insist you be home every night
I insist I tuck you in bed just right.
I insist you don’t say a word
I insist my feelings be transferred.
I insist that you leave me alone!
I insist that your hands do not roam!
I insist words will come from my lips!
I insist I will shoot you and not miss!
You are a kid with no power to spare
I will do as I wish everywhere.
Bang! You are dead.
CHILD ABUSE IS WRONG. IF YOU ARE BEING ABUSED; TELL SOMEONE, ANYONE. THIS IS NOT YOUR FAULT. DON’T MAKE IT YOUR FAULT.
