A Grieving Daughter

She told her daughter she hated her and wished she was never born.
She didn't even seem to care that the child's heart was torn.
She blamed child for all of her heartache and pain.
Did she realize emotional abuse can drive a child insane.
She said her child was the reason she never achieved her dreams.
Those words hurt her child more than to her they may have seemed.
All her daughter wanted was her love and her affection.
But all she ever got was her mother's constant rejection,
Feeling like a lost child with no one to love.
She prayed to be taken away to the heavens above,
Not knowing why she just wasn't good enough.
Why, when she needed gentleness, was she treated so rough.
Wondering why her existence caused her mother so much pain,
Longing for her mother's love she probably would never gain.
Wanting her mother to tell her she was a blessing,
That she was not the reason for her mother's stressing.
If there is a little girl out there that feels this way,
Just know you are one of GOD's Angels, and he loves you more each day.

I was getting abused since I was as little as I can remember by my mother. She said the reason she had me is that she was forced with my Dad (Not true). She said she never wanted me and kicked me out when I was 7 with my little sister (Just born). I raised my sister for 7 years now. With my father, he got back from Afghanistan and I didn't even know him. I haven't talked to my mother for 1 years and I'm The mother to my sister. I'm blessed to have a family to watch over. But I'm glad my mom treated the was she did or I wouldn't be so close to my little sister the way I do now..<3

A month or so before mother died she screamed one inch from my face ''I don't care what happens to you when I'm alive''. That caused a feeling of fear and severe chest pain. I laid on the floor a few hours. The tight chest feeling was much less. The pain and break in my heart has never gone away. I carry this with me each breath I breath. Rejection and hate. Since her death I do not want anything to do with her memory. The relationship was poor. I can not deny the past but I need to say I did love mother. That was my thought. Now I am thinking of the present. What was is a memory seldom uncovered.

My heart goes out to anyone who was abandoned by one or both parents. I was abandoned by both parents when I was two, along with my brother who was 3. We were left to the Children's Aid Society to find a good home for us. After 14 different foster homes, we were placed with foster parents who abused us emotionally, verbally, physically and sexually. Now I am 53 and my brother is 54 years old. I have a family that includes a loving husband, son and daughter and my brother has us. I believe I love because my heavenly Father loves me.

My eldest sister lived with our grand parents I lived in foster and children homes. My younger sister lived with my mam. My mam loved my two sisters because they had the same dad. I was different. When I was 7, on Christmas Eve they told me that my mother went to have an abortion, because my parents weren't married, but she went a week to late and couldn't. I don't care. I went back and forth from mams to dads until they got fed up with me and my atrocious temper. I don't regret my past, where I lived and what has happened because I love my life. I have met amazing people. My mother was angry when I was engaged because she never has been married and my life was going to be good. Thankfully, my dad didn't even show up. I have an amazing big sister who has been my mam and dad and now I have a son who I love dearly. I'm married to the most amazing man I will NEVER tell my son he's unwanted and every night he goes to sleep when I tell him that I love him.

To this day I have never felt wanted and am 30 yrs old. Ever since I was little I was never told by my parents that they love me. My mother has 3 grown children but only bothers with my sister. Me and my brother was dumped in and out of care but yet she kept my sister I make a point of telling my beautiful daughter that I love her every day. My mother is jealous of the bond that I have with my daughter. So much so she has tried wrecking my bond with her by telling my ten year old lies about me. I have always been told that I was an accident but my daughter asked me the other day was she planned I told her no but I was excited when I found out I was having her. And that she was a happy surprise. And she knows no matter what I am always there for her. And will always love her because like I said to my princess if you turn your back on your child then it makes you a crap parent hugs to you all

My dad told me until the day he died that I was the biggest mistake of his life, my mum gave my brother and sister love and affection but not me.
My brother sexually abused me for years, why did no one see what he was doing ? May be they didn't care .
I'm 51 now with my own children who I love so much but I've still got a big hole in my heart, I spend money on clothes to try and feel better but of course it doesn't work.
I've has lots of counseling but I'm still a lost soul looking for my parents love and acceptance. They are both dead now.

My mother from being tiny always said that she wished she had never had me and wouldn't be here with my father if it wasn't for me. We would be locked outside to play and couldn't get in unless we knocked on the door as she wanted the house spick and span if anyone came. My mother always looked immaculate, always had new clothes neatly ironed and pressed and drawers full of new clothes neatly arranged with tissue to stop them creasing. I had to scrub my blouse collars as I got older because they would get grubby and I didn't have another clean one to wear. My socks were held up with elastic bands to stop them falling down and my clothes would be second hand. My father, we barely saw him and when we did there were big arguments and sulks and we weren't allowed to talk to my father. My youngest brother by 13 years is the prodigal son and has had everything he can from my mother. She has just bought a house for him and her. She has completely turned her back on the other 3 children.

I'm currently 15, and when I was born I was neglected by my mother because I was a female and not a male. For the first 2 years of my life I lived with my Grandma (from my father's side) and since I have come home me and my dad have been emotionally abused. As well for me I've been abused. I've been to counseling, which did nothing and now I'm seeing a child psychologist because my teachers are worried about how this is affecting my grades. The psychologist said nothing could be done as my neglection is classified as a "cultural" situation as I am Asian.
This poem really touches my heart, in fact I have chosen to analyze this poem for my English speech assignment (:

My mother always blamed me for getting pregnant with me and forcing her to get married to my father. She hated me even more once I became a teenager because I was doing all the things that she was not able to do anymore.
She said that I was her biggest mistake in life and that she wished that I would never been born. I went through years and years of abuse with her and my father.
I'm 25 years old now and I'm married to the most amazing guy and we have a wonderful son together.
I have not talked to my parents for over a year and I could not be happier!
God has given me the strength that I always needed. I'm somewhat happy that I'm not alone and that other girls understand how I feel.

I grew up with a mom who was addicted to pot and drinking and later on in my life she became a heavy crack addict and before she started crack she was my best friend. My world. My everything. But as soon as crack came into view I was nothing to her. She wished I wasn't around.. She hated me and I didn't even know why.. This poem describes exactly how I felt growing up.
