Why would you hurt me mommy
You abused all the power you had over me
And forgot what it was that a parent should be
Shaking me violently, you wounded me deep
I wept during the hours when most people sleep
Beaten up daily I shivered and cried
Teachers would question me but I only lied
For no one could know that my mommy so sweet
Was hatefully abusive and ready to beat.
So I continued my life and went on my way
Not ever knowing why you beat me each day
Why brokenness and pain were given to me
Could you tell me now mommy? I'm wanting to see.
