Child Abuse

Written by Survivor

Please Don’t Hit Me!

I know that you are tired, and you are feeling really bad,

But hitting me and yelling at me makes me feel very, very sad.

When you call me names and push me to the floor,

I get so sick in my tummy

And so very scared, and I cry when you hurt my mommy.

I think that it’s my fault when you punch me and make me scream,

And when I go to bed at night, I have very bad dreams.

My arms hurt, and my legs are black and blue,

Tell me, Daddy, what can I do for you so you will be ok?

Anything I can do or say?

Maybe one day you will be happy again,

And then that day we can become friends.
