Please pick me up!
Never mind I'm gonna fall down anyways~
Please show me how to tie my shoes and sing my ABC! 
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 me anymore!
Go ahead they won't believe me anyway~
Teacher can you please defend me in school!
Never mind my body is use 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 start drinking too many beers!
Okay 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 nose~
Please officer why are you taking my husband?
Don't you know it was my fault,  he loves me and won't hit me again~
Please don't hit me in the face!
Go ahead 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 don't leave me alone I'm okay with the abuse!
I understand you're tired of the reason and my crying excuse~
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 didn't speak~
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 :-(

    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

    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

    Heya P.D. I can't keep up with all of the poems. There are 400 being posted every 24 hours lol. And then I feel like congratulating some people, answering a few blogs etc. I can't make this a full-time job. You really drove home the nail with this poem, the way you play each line against the other in every couplet, and then finish off with some total angst. Yikes.
