No More Abuse


No more abuse said the little girl at age ten.
No more abuse she said, praying to God no, not again.
No more abuse she cries, Lord, please take me beyond the sky.
With every painful strike of her abuser's whip,
She images a place, beyond the demon's grip.
No more, abuse as her step-dad rapes her over and over again
No more abuse she cries, 'Will I always have to live this lie?
No more abuse as he shows her the shotgun; in the closet if she tells all her family (mama, sister and brothers) would he kill. She was trying to protect them, don't you see!
No more, abuse she screams, lying on the hospital bed.
No more, abuse as the hospital nurse takes the bell away as she is in so much pain!
No more abuse, doctors and the nurses thought the little girl was sixteen and needed not to scream, because they thought she was being very bad with boys is certainly the reason why she is having a baby.
No more, abuse from age 8,9 and 10 her body was used like an adult, but she was only 12 years old and 11 when she was got pregnant by her stepfather with the baby.
No more abuse God is coming soon, as the Bible said and all her pain and suffering will be put to death.
No more abuse she cried out in pain.
No more abuse as she cried for her mother.
No more abuse she cries as her body gives birth to a son and her stepbrother.

No More Abuse!
