The Girl

The Girl

A Poem by }Echo{
"

A poem...

"

She lays on the
Cold hard floor,
Crying softly…

Knowing if someone
Hears her,
She would get hurt again…

She is 
Begging God to
Let the pain stop....

They had done it
Again…

Beat her,
Raped her,
Screamed and yelled
At her…

Now she’s just
Ready for it to end…

She doesn’t understand
What she did to make them
So mad…

She doesn’t understand
What she did to deserve this…

She doesn’t understand
Why this pain has no end…

Her dad beats her…
Then rapes her…

And lets her brothers,
Or anyone else
Do the same…

Her mother does nothing
About it…

She’s not around to
Care…

One day…

When she gets home
From school,
They are waiting
For her...

They all beat her,
Rape her,
She begs for them
To stop...

But they won't...

But now there
Is sweet release...

The beating is too
Much...


Now...

She lies crumpled on
The floor…

Her father killed her tonight…

 

Child Abuse Needs to f*****g stop. Every day an average of 5 kids die from child abuse in the U.S. 2/3 of teenagers and adults who become addicted to narcotics were abused or neglected as children. 899,000 children and teens reported being abused in the U.S and almost twice that amount go through it but never report it. 63,527 kids and teens reported being sexually abused in the U.S. 56% of them are girls, and 48% of them are guys who are abused physically or sexually. 1 out of every 3 girls are sexually assulted by the age of 18. 48% of children and teens who are abused or neglected commit suicide.  68% of all kids and teens who are abused self-harm. Kids and teens who are abused are twice as likely to be abusive to their spouses or kids. Child abuse has to stop. No child should have to live through that, and it’s never going to stop if no one tries to stop it.

CHILD ABUSE NEEDS TO FUCKING STOP BECAUSE EVERYDAY KIDS AND TEENS HAVE TO GO THROUGH BEING ABUSED AND NEGLECTED BY THE PEOPLE WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO FUCKING PROTECT THEM.

A message with so much effort put into it deserves respect. Good poem

This is so touching and graphic. You exceed my expectations with each piece you write. It's truly a pity that these horrid crimes against humanity exist in the world. Great minds like you, who spread awareness and the drive to make a change through the power of the word, are too few in this realm. Never stop writing, thank you so much for writing such a beautiful, yet tragic piece.

So true and such an ugly truth that we live with today. Thank you for writing so beautifully and honestly on a topic that a lot of people don't want to discuss.

very powerful, heart-wrenching poem, that speaks this sad truth, that has to be brought out more, and your words brilliant penned indeed bring this horrific tragedy that goes on everyday, more into the light. i too was also beaten severely and mentally/emotionally abused growing up, thank you for sharing this, as quite a few people (most) can relate to this write. 100 to 100

S**t.. I'm sorry. Yeah, it's such f*****g bullshit.
This is horrible and happens way too much. And I'm glad you added my favorite songs to show that everyone needs to see what happens to the abused children.
