Abuse Poem by Teens

This is a poem I did for myself. I was abused by my mother and at the same time being molested by my older cousin. I was 7 years old. I was afraid and I'm 16 now. I just finally found the strength to get it out, and its been really rough this year. I just hope that anyone who reads this can feel or understand the feelings. It means a lot to me

Sleepless Nights

Sad, tearful & alone
With Broken bones
I'm all alone
No one to help my off the floor
The hurt beating down on me
Why does mommy hurt me?
Her mood changes like a flip of a coin
She calls me her angel, playing with my hair
Then she hits me over and over again
Fear in heart, sadness in mind
Scenes Change
I'm not alone
A man in front of me
Touching me
I don't like it
I tell him to stop
He doesn't care
He doesn't stop
I don't like it
I cry, I'm afraid
He tells me to be quiet
I cry more, he stops
Nights go by
Afraid to sleep
I pray that mommy won't hurt me when I wake
From my sleep

I feel what you feel. But my story is a tad different.
Abused, physically and sexually by my father at the age 3-9.
I am glad I got away
Still in therapy at age 16.
