Because......

Because......

A Poem by TurtleClark

I am a cheerleader.... so i can avoid my home
I avoid my home.... so i don't hear the yelling
There is yelling.... because my sister hates my brother
She hates him.... because he hurts her
He hurts her.... because he thinks he can
He think he can.... because no one tells him he can't
No one tells him he can't.... because no one cares
No one cares.... because they don't take the time
They don't take the time.... because there are no bruises
There are no bruises.... because the abuse is verbal

How do you show pain 
Thats written under the skin
That scorch's the soul with every syllable

Wonderful work.. Wondering why this stanza isn't a famous quote, honestly.

deep just like the pain of abuse. Mental abuse is so unrecognised. Well done for standing up and writing this piece. x
