• you came home and beat me
    and broke my bones
    didn't take me to doctor
    until mum was coming home

    i sit down tembling
    nibbling on my nails
    hoping you stop hurting me
    but this hope always fails

    she knows what really happened
    but can't ever believe it's real
    can't she see it's hurting me
    these scars that never heal

    my aunt takes me to a doctor
    learns of my state at home
    arranges with people
    to take me as her own

    my last words to my parents
    were words worth spent
    "These bruises and contusions
    will remind me of what you did when I went!"
