A seven year old girl
Bright as can be
Got all A's

Never harmed a soul
Helped everybody out
No matter how big or small

When she went home
Her mummy would be preparing dinner
She would finish all her home work

She would eat dinner
With her mummy and her daddy
Being polite
Being perfect

But then
That night came

Daddy came home
Smelling like perfume
But not of mummies

After she was put to bed
She got up and hid
To listen to mummy and daddy

Mummy said
Sweetie, thatís you sixth beer tonight
And daddy replied
Rack off

Mummy
Polite as can be
Asked about
Another woman

Daddy smashed
The beer down
Making it shatter into a million pieces

She gasped
Daddy never broke anything

Mummy screamed
Daddy yelled
Daddy hit mummy
Right in the eye

Mummy fell
Daddy yelled
Get out of my house you money snatching leech

Mummy stood up
Mummies eye was big
She was crying

Mummy whispered
You harm my baby
And I will make you pay

Daddy shouted
You coward
As if you ever cared about her
As if you would come back

And mummy didnít

Mummy walked out
Daddy ran up the stairs
She called out
Daddy?

He spun around
And picked me up
Oh sweetie
You saw?

She nodded
And started crying
Why did you hit mummy?

He looked her in the eyes
And said
It was her on fault

Now
A thirteen year old girl
Dull as can be
Got all D's

Always started fights
Beat everybody up
No matter how big or small

When she got home
Her daddy would be at his second job
She would go to a friendís house

She always had
A cut here
A bruise there

She wore
Long sleeved shirts
Long baggy pants
And bottles and bottles and tubes and tubes of makeup

Every night
A new cut
A new bruise
A new reason to die

She would scream
For help
For anything
She kept asking herself
Is there no justice
Is there no lord?
She would ask herself
What have I done to deserve this?

She always went to bed thinking
Oí why Oí why
She slept during school
Because at night
She would lay awake
Shaking

One day
The principal called her
She pulled down her sleeves

The principal said
I want to know whatís been happening at home
She said nothing

The principal made her go to counselling
She never said a word

But ever night she would scream
For help
For anything
She kept asking herself
Is there no justice?
Is there no lord?
What did I do to deserve this?

But then

A friend was over
Trying to make her study
And succeeding
Daddy was drunk
He slapped her
The friend squealed
The friend ran out the door
And called the police

There is justice,
She thought,
There is a lord
I never deserved this
No not at all

This is a phenomenal write. It has so much emotion packed into it, it's overwhelming. I really, really love this. My favorite part was :

But every night she would scream
For help
For anything
She kept asking herself
Is there no justice?
Is there no lord?
What did I do to deserve this?

   Amazing, it made me cry. And just assuming that this was something you experienced, feel free to contact me at anytime if you need to.

I have never been through this and I hope I never will.

The way I see poetry though is that if you take a subject that you really are against or for or have been through and hold a single (or many) emotion(s)to and write from your heart it you will make a great poem
