A Girl Of Abuse

A Girl Of Abuse

A Poem by Alelei

Title pretty much explains it. I was inspired to write this because of the domestic violence that happens in NZ.


There is a girl who cries each night
Because she's so scared to face the light
She's so hurt but nothing is being done
She's been suffering since she was only one
Inside she's dying and is in pain
Wondering whether she'll ever be free again
She tries to make the best out of her life
By escaping the grief and defying strife
Her life is full of abuse and rejection
Receiving hate rather than affection
Her father gives her hits and smacks
While even her mother gives her kicks and whacks
Her family doesn't seem to care
Either do they notice she's in despair
She's trying to find a better path to follow
In hope to heal a heart that is hollow
But all she can do is try to survive
Try to stay safe and stay alive

I've been in this situation, and no words can explain it... but this was really close! Very emotional, great job. You captured the essence...

Very emotional and effective piece of work. The rhyming adds emphasis and demands the readers to keep reading, nice job!

So sad! I really like the flow of your words and how everything rhymes. I love the ending...even with everything in her life that is going wrong she doesn't seem to give up. "But all she can do is try to survive
Try to stay safe and stay alive." Great poem! :)
