My Name Is Sarah

My name is Sarah,
I am but three,
My eyes are swollen,
I cannot see.

I must be stupid,
I must be bad,
What else could have made
My daddy so mad?

I wish I were better,
I wish I weren't ugly,
Then maybe my mommy
Would still want to hug me.

I can't do a wrong,
I can't speak at all,
Or else I'm locked up
All day long.

When I'm awake,
I'm all alone,
The house is dark,
My folks aren't home.

When my mommy comes home,
I'll try and be nice,
So maybe I'll just get
One whippin tonight.

I just heard a car,
My daddy is back
From Charlie's bar.

I hear him curse,
My name is called.
I press myself, I try to hide
From his evil eyes.

I'm so afraid now,
I'm starting to cry.
He finds me weepin,
Calls me ugly words.

He says it's my fault
He suffers at work.
He slaps and hits me
And yells at me more.

I finally get free
And run to the door.
He's already locked it
And I start to bawl.

He takes me
And throws me
Against the hard wall.
I fall to the floor.

With my bones nearly broken,
My daddy continues
With more bad words spoken.

I'm sorry!", I scream,
But it's now much to late.
His face has been twisted
Into a unimaginable hate.

This truly is a horrific sight,
As he picks me up
And throws me
Against the lampshade light.

The hurt and the pain,
Again and again.
O please God, have mercy!
O please let it end!

And he finally stops,
And heads for the door,
While I lay there motionless
Brawled on the floor.

My name is Sarah,
I am but three.
Tonight my daddy
Murdered me!
