Abuse Poem

Asking Jesus to save her from a bad situation.

Dear Mr. Jesus

© Jessica Martin
It looks like I will see you soon!
Mommy and Daddy are arguing.

It started around June!
Mommy hit me, when Daddy drove away!

I went upstairs and hugged Mr. Fluffy
And I prayed that everything is okay!

Daddy came back,
while Mommy was not there!

He grabbed me by my wrists!
and took my teddy bear!

I saw him tear off Mr. Fluffy’s head!
Then he took off his belt and whipped me!

But nothing could be said!
Daddy hit me, when Mommy walked through the door

I though she would stop him!
But she added more!

Mommy was drunk
and Daddy was high!

Mommy burnt me with her cigarette
and yelled at Daddy goodbye!

My eyes were black,
and my stomach was bruised!

I had 3 broken ribs
and a loose tooth!

I stopped going to school
cause I didn't want to explain

that my parents are so cruel
and why I am going insane!

I can't move my body,
cause Daddy stabbed me in my spine!

I would rather be dead!
then live this life of mine!

So..Dear Mr. Jesus!
I will be with you tonight!

I do love my Family!
But I cannot win this fight!

I know you will take care of me!
As my spirit lifts away!

and when I see you
everything will be okay!

I know I will be loved more up there!
Because Mommy and Daddy hated me!

and you have more love to share!

The only thing they loved,
was hurting me!

They don't care about my heath,
cause all I ate was dirt!

So Mr. Jesus!
I cant wait to see you!

  • This poem has really touched me that parents could actually hurt a child like that and that the child has to turn to Jesus for help..no child should have to suffer at the hands of their parents..it makes me sad to hear about these children being abused just like the animals.

  • Wow that was a very touching poem. it made feel like crying. I cannot imagine parents who could hate their children so much. I pray that we advocate against any abuse of our children. we should stand together and say "No" to the abuse of little children. To you my poor little one I want to say we love you much and Jesus will give strength to pull through. Never give up on life I am sure Jesus wants you to be the voice of the voiceless. Love you so much God Bless you

  • This poem really brought tears to my eyes, especially at this time where rapes and murders of children are common. No child should go through this. Excellent poem
