Abuse Poem by Teens

Abused by Dad Poem

I'm 16 years old. I've lived through a lot and I feel like writing helps to get some of the pain off my shoulders. My parents play games with me. Hide and seek is their favourite, hence the name of the poem. Other people who go through this daily you are in my prayers, I know how you feel, I have lived with this for 10 years of my life and I will never be able to forget it.

Hide And Seek

Published: July 2011

I try to be quiet
I hear them get closer
their shoes echo on the floor
my life's a roller coaster.

Was it honestly her
who told me she loved me
not 3 hours before
holding me closely

all has changed now
'cause he has arrived
he scares me so much
I run and I hide.

They're trying to find me
they're using the trick
take a few steps
and listen for a tick,

wait for the sound
for my breath to run out
I'll need to breathe soon
then I'm busted, sought out

I know what is coming
it's easier to surrender
to broken bones and bruises
I can explain them later.

Pulled up from my place
I can see his smile
smell the scotch on his breath
I have to swallow the bile.

I try to be quiet
not a sound, not a peep
I'm scared of his games
I don't like Hide and seek.

This reflects my life. I would run and hide with my sister. My mother would give us cocaine and her and her friends would abuse and rape us. Bruises, broken bones, and my sister had a ruptured spleen. Tell someone and hang in there.
