Please pick me up!
Never mind I'm gonna fall, anyways
Please show me how to tie my shoes and sing a song! 
Don't worry mommy, I'll walk barefoot and teach myself one day
Please daddy show me how to ride my bike!
Never mind It takes up too much of your time
Mommy, please do not hit me again!
It's okay, I need to be taught a lesson
Cousin please do not touch!
Go ahead, they won't believe me anyway
Teacher, please defend me in school!
Never mind, my body is used to the abuse
Please don't tell me sleeping with you is the only way! 
Okay, I need to be loved even if it's for one night
Please teach me how to raise a baby!
It's okay, I can't blame others for my mistake
Please don't get violent when you drink tonight!'
If it makes you feel better hit me, 
I'll hide the bruise with makeup & tears
Please tell me that I'm beautiful!
Wait! Your right I'll never look like her!
Please someone call 911!
Never mind, it's only a broken bone
Officer, please don't take my husband?
Don't you know it was my fault, he loves me and won't hit me again
Please don't ask what happen to my face!
That's what I get for standing up and defending myself
Please God don't take my baby!
Go ahead and take her I don't deserve her
Please don't tell me your not in love with me!
I understand I'll never be worthy of your heart
Please don't walk away and break my heart!
It's okay, I never made progress or was good enough
Please someone help, I'm hurting inside!
Never mind my feelings don't count
Please God, can you hear me!
Please God, can you rescue me!
Please God, can you walk with me!
Please God, can you show me the way!
God- I was a baby, I was weak, and did not talk
God- you didn't protect me on my first fall
God- I was abandoned and neglected before I learned to crawl!
God- even you rejected all my prayers and call
I understand now I don't need nothing! 
I don't need no one at ALL
So PLEASE, PLEASE leave me alone, behind these walls 
.                              **
Please! If you read this teach me how to smile
WAIT! Smiles don't come with self blame & guilt

    This speaks to me on an emotional and personal connection. I would really love to converse with you sometime. I love your work.

    Dear PD...This poem is on a level well above any stock adjectives of praise. I've re- read three times....each time finding new ways of interlocking phrasing on many emotional levels.... I have touched on this subject matter in two, past poems. It's my privilege to be associated with such a superbly gifted writer....who inspires me... Your PS friend and fan....... Gene Bourne

    Hi Linda What an emotional poem. Sad but true. ALL OF IT !!. It sad that this poem will be ageless. And never out of style. Sad really to have to think that. Thanks for reading my poems as well. Karen

    Again, I will tell you Linda. This poem is such a strong and emotional piece of great writing. Poems like this can draw a reader into it. Where they can experience what it is that you are feeling when you wrote it....Hugs....Roger

    Painful and sad, I hope the wounds have healed. I can't imagine writing like this unless it applied.

    i was emotionally exhausted when i finished reading, saw so many things and unpleasent memories, love and life is a battlefield, now i sit back and i realize somehow i survived, as so many others who have seen these very things happen to either themselves or to others. It is a painful reality, thats why looking ahead and making the best of what you have helps to renew the soul and the spirit, please accept my ssmile and thank you for sharing
