Forgive Me,Why

I have spent years trying to find the answers I long to have.
I am still clueless as to why. 
why did you do the things you did ?
I was your daughter 
your own flesh and blood 
yet you robbed me 
time and time again 
everytime you said or did something 
another piece of me  was taken 
I will never get that back.
It will always be lost to me 
I was our child,
the one you were supposed to love forever.
But forever must have seemed just a bit to long 
or maybe just  to much for you to handle 
the names you called me 
the times you laughed at me 
and the threats that made me quiver in my bed with fear 
haunt me still 
Years later you sit and ask me how you are supposed to forgive,
for what I have done ?! 
forgivness for what ?
being a child 
being born?
Being too loud,
too quite 
too bad,
to much to handle ?
Or just being your child 
that was born to you?
Today is a new day 
tomorrow  hasn’t come yet 
and yesterday is behind me 
but for today,
I will not indulge,
your abusive 
game you wish to play.
Nothing more,
are you going to steal from me 
this day.
