The poem is below.


I'd very much like to be excluded
Don't want to be part of your identity
Never see myself growing with you
For you are worse than an enemy
Whipping your own blood and flesh
Battling with wounds every single day
My screams are coated with tapes
As you dress me the best fear of all
Can hardly escape to these handcuffs
No emergency call to ask for rescue
For you have no mercy on me
That you even lock me out in my own room
Could not build my love and trust
Hatred and loneliness conquers my soul
I might be numb in every torture
But deep inside is more likely abused
My body is weary and need an understanding
Don't know when is pain going to end
For I'd like to take this life
Before he'll realize that he loses his child again
