"daddy why do you treat me,
this way"
she wants to scream,
as he throws her agains the wall.
she dare not make a sound,
because it would only make,
that nights beatings worse.
shes only two!
why would you hurt her this way.
shes only two!
nd shes never felt loved.
she lived liek this for years,
since a little baby.
the neighbors heard her crys fer help,
late at night,
her teacher saw the bruises
that colored her body.
her doctor saw the scars,
but they always had stories.
she heard her friends mommies nd daddys tell them they love them.
shes only five! nd her daddy never said i lvoe you.
shes only five!
nd no ones goign to save her.
"daddy why do you treat me
this way"
she wants to scream,
as he throws her against the wall
but she dare not
make a sound,
for tonights beatings might jsut be the last.
