I'm Sorry Dear Little Sister

©

Published: July 2012

Everyday the same sounds,
Screaming and pain.
Running up the stairs again,
Away from here I want to flee.
Just us little sister,
You and me.
I know he scares you when he shouts,
He calls you names and won't let out.
I know the pain is hard to see,
But we know little sister you and me.
You know we're not so different you see,
I feel that way too a lot.
I know he hits you,
He hit me sometimes too.
I'm sorry little sister that I can't help.
Because I'm scared little sister,
Scared that I can't stop him.
But little sister I want you to know,
He doesn't want to hurt you, I know.
Because sometimes little sister I feel that too,
I feel like him and I take it out on you.
I'm sorry little sister for when I be mean,
But I can't help it little sister it's inside of me.
Because little sister he hurt me too,
And now that's all I know.
I'm sorry when I scream and shout,
It reminds me when he threw me out.
He loves us little sister,
I know he does.
But he has his own problems,
And sometimes forgets about us.
Please little sister forgive me,
I will try to be nicer I will.
Because little sister I want to be good,
So you won't grow up to be mean too.
I want you to be good and kind,
I want you to be nice to our little sister and keep her in line.
Please be stronger than me little sister,
And be well and happy.
I see it little sister,
It's in you too.
But listen to me little sister,
Don't go down that road.
If you do little sister,
You'll end up like me.
I love you little sister remember that,
Because what daddy did is turning me mad.

This relates to me so so much. Instead of little sister, I do this to my older sisters. I was told by my PE teacher that my sister said that she loved me and it hurt her when I was mean and threatened her. It hurt when she told me that but it changed me so much. Thank you.

I cried and related to this so much. Thank you for posting this. I did not know someone felt the same way as me.

I am 17. When I was 16 my sister Hannah who was 13 at the time died. She had no friends and our parents were addicted to drugs. She cut herself all the time. One day she got out of control and cut too deep. Of course my parents were not stable enough to understand. I called 911. An hour later the doctor walked over with a sour face and said "excuse me for the words I'm about to say. I'm sorry for your loss." I just started collapsing. My own world had gone and left. Since then my parents have been clean.

This poem made me cry because it reminds so much of my life. I love my little sisters but I'm so mean and abusive to them because that's the way my mother is with us. I both verbally and physically abuse them. I try to stop but I can't it it's just the way I am I can't change but I want so much. I would want the same for myself but my life is over as if I want to end it.
