    This shook me up
    Blue Ribbon AGAINST Child Abuse; pass it on please!!

    My name is Sarah

    I am but three,

    My 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,

    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 Sarah

    And I am but three,

    Tonight my daddy

    Murdered me.

    There are thousands of kids out there just like Sarah And you can help.

    It sickens me to my soul, and if you just read this and don't pass it on I=
    pray for your forgiveness, because you would have to be one heartless perso=
    n to not be affected by this email. And because you are affected, do somethi=
    ng about it!! So all I am asking you to do is take some time to send this on=
    and acknowledge that this stuff does happen, and that people like her dad d=
    o live in our society, and pray for child abuse to wither out and die, but a=
    All so pray for the safety of our youth.

    Please pass this poem on as a Blue Ribbon Against Child Abuse because, as=20=
    crazy as it might sound, it might just indirectly change a life.=20

    Please forward if you are=20

    Everyday there are children having to face cowards like that. How can they protect themselves from that?

    It brought tears to my eyes. Maybe more so because I have a 2 1/2 year old. I will never understand child abuse.

    Sad poem, yes. However, I think there are sadder songs that more hit me than this one. Concrete Angel is one of them.

    And then it says that you'd have to be "one heartless person" to not be effected? Meh.

    But yes, child abuse, along with domestic violence, is inexcusable.

    Very touching poem. There's never an excuse to hurt a defenseless child. I do wonder how many adults with children there are out there that have psychological issues that they have not addressed, too. Why, when we adopt a dog, do we have to fill out so much paperwork, and even have someone come look at our house to make sure it's good enough, yet there are no applications necessary or parenting classes required to have a child!

    i love a good domestic violence poem. Makes me tear up like a good episode of law and order.

    When my sister was a kid her best friend was raped by her stepfather repeatedly, and one day she shot herself in the head, she was 14. At the age of seven I learned never to gripe about the fairness of life.
