My name is Emily..... 
I am three, 
eyes are swollen 
I cannot see, 
I must be stupid 
I must be bad, 
what else could have made 
my daddy so mad? 
I wish I were better 
I wish I weren't ugly, 
Then maybe my mommy 
would still want to hug me. 
I can't speak at all,
I can't do a wrong 
Or else I'm locked up 
All the day long. 
When I awake I'm all alone 
The house is dark 
My folks aren't home 
When my mommy does come 
I'll try and be nice, 
So maybe I'll get just 
One whipping tonight. 
Don't make a sound! 
I just heard a car 
My daddy is back 
From Charlie's Bar. 
I hear him curse 
My name he calls 
I press myself 
Against the wall 
I try and hide 
From his evil eyes 
I'm so afraid now,
I'm starting to cry 
He finds me weeping 
He shouts ugly words, 
Maybe now I'll die,
He says its my fault 
That he suffers at work. 
He slaps me and hits me 
And yells at me more, 
I finally get free 
And I run for the door. 
He's already locked it 
And I start to bawl, 
He takes me and throws me 
Against the hard wall. 
I fall to the floor 
With my bones nearly broken, 
And my daddy continues 
With more bad words spoken. 
"I'm sorry!", I scream 
But its now much too late 
His face has been twisted 
Into unimaginable hate, 
The hurt and the pain 
Again and again 
Oh please God, have mercy! 
Oh please let it end! 
And he finally stops 
And heads for the door, 
While I lay there motionless 
Sprawled on the floor,
My name is Emily
I am three, 
And tonight my daddy 
Murdered me.

thank you.
O my god it makes me want to cry and scream and break something to know that people can be so evil! People as a group have never been and will never be completely good but I know there was a time before all of this when there was less cruelty; whether it be toward children, spouses, animals or anything else. I want to know what has poisoned the hearts and minds of humans. I know God did not make us so evil. But there are good people too. And I just hope that the good can overpower at least some of this evil. We are good. We can make the world a better place. Join us in our fight against the evil of the world.

I am big and people talking about their abuse.If we dont tell kids how to stand up fight back and survive who will. Many times I hear justice has been done so keep quiet about it.I was mollested for years by my uncle.after he went to prison everyone was like dont talk about it it will only shame the family.How are other kids going to know what to look for if we dont tell them. Great poem powerful and raw.

dear youcannotbreakme,
this poem is really good! it has a great message which cannot be ignored any longer! I am glad that you have posted it here in this group, or I might not have found my way to it! it was very descriptive, andpainted a really vivid picture in my mind. spread the word. send RR to all your friends. this has to be stopped.
and also, can you do me a HUGE favor and review, (and read) 'the silver necklace'? I want to know what others think of it. any constructive criticism is totally open!
