Mama yelled at me tonight
Guess she thinks its allright
I must be really bad
To get all the whippings I've had
Mama says that I'm no count
That I will never amount
To anything in this big old world
That she never wanted a little girl

Sad eyes crying every day
Never going out to play
Mama says bad girls can't go
I can't even watch a TV show
Mama leaves me all alone
I think her heart is made of stone
I cry but no one hears
No one to hug me or dry my tears

Mama says she can't stand me
She locks me in and hides the key
Says I'm dumb and stupid too
I don't know much so it must be true
I wish my heart didn't hurt so much
A little child needs a mothers touch
Mine leaves red marks on me
And lifetime scars that
no one can see

Most Excellent__ Reprimanding a Child & Yelling at Child Are 2 Different Thing's__ But A Child Starts . 3,4,5, Must Learn Discipline,a Form Of Fear Which Becomes RESPECT__

Whether It Is YOU Momma Or Daddy That Child Will Respect You Or Dis Respect You In Same__

Never Can You Buy His/Her Love_ Just Give Him a Car, Credit Card Or $$$$ To Get Him Outa My Face,i.e. BIG Dis-Respect!

Oh this is so sad! Makes me ache to know that this horrible thing happens to so many children! This poem hopefully will keep us aware and maybe we'll be able to help some poor little child!

Linda, This is very moving. How can parents be so cruel is hard to understand.

You are doing great my friend

Linda, very well written. This is sooo! sad. I have never figured how someone could inflict such pain and burden on another. Especially ones' own child.
