Why Do You Treat Me Like This

Why Do You Treat Me Like This

A Poem by Tori Jones

When you insult me
And mock me
I feel ill stricken
And defeated
For everything I do
Is to help you
And keep you safe
So why do you treat me like this...

Why do I deserve to suffer
For your faults and mistakes
Why do I get beaten
For you sake
I give you my all 
And put my life at risk for you
So why do you treat me like this...

I want you to care for me
As I have cared for you
But instead I get hurt
On your behalf
And ground down into dirt
Don't you care
That you tore me in half
If so
Why do you treat me like this...

I have been here before and it stinks so bad.
It's wrong for people to treat others like this.
Expressed so well.

I... Don't know what to say. I hope everything is okay. This is very well crafted and beautiful. The repetition of the painful question shows the rawness of suffering. Whatever pain you're experiencing, you do not deserve. But, don't let it break you. You have a choice to come out of this stronger than before.
