"Sounds like a Personal Problem."


Eliza sits in the back of the class,
Tear stained eyes,
And hand prints on her throat.
She is covering her bruises with bruises,
Doesn’t even know why she’s the ridicule of abuse,
Doesn’t know her skin color, because it was lost in black and blue,
From her father, But I guess since her father is always drunk,
And her mother’s too high in the kitchen, to ever come down, and talk to her, that she becomes her father’s punching bag.
And she just wishes it would stop, and she could go back to holding his hand, because she desperately misses being
Daddy’s little girl.
But the abuse just comes and comes,
And she can’t make it stop because he is a grown man and she’s still his little girl
But she is growing into a woman, and he knows this,
And he won’t allow her because she will tower,
And he won’t have control over that girl he once called his princess,
Who he promised jewels and a throne, he never said those jewels would be black eyes and the throne was her bed which he laid with her at night, while her mother was dealing dope, In the kitchen, thinking it was nothing wrong as she ignored her daughter scream out at his command, I am
Daddy’s little girl
He felt her, touched her, he molested his own daughter and listened to her screams echo off the walls and enter his ears and give him a turn on, and times like this when she had enough and brain possibly can’t function with what happened, she thinks back to when she ran to her father and not away, when she was
Daddy’s little girl
Today Eliza sits in the back of the class,
Hood over head, red eyes, bruises no longer bruises but scars.
She was called names, by that of her father, she couldn't control, and never tried to bother. She took the names and the hate with it too, all out of love of being,
Daddy’s little girl.
She told me, how she was full of rage, the home was not a place, and it always seemed dazed...she said to me that death was near, she didn't say for who, but you could tell by the tears.
Eliza died bringing life into the world.
The father picked up his child and granddaughter, and said to her,
You know what?
You’re Daddy’s little girl.

I wrote this for a talent show. All of this is fiction, nothing real.

Wow! Oh my gosh the ending was perfect! The content was amazing! Please keep writing. The only thing I found out of place was that the lines were long and it was more of like a story than a poem. Maybe shorter lines next time? And the punctuation was great!

Oh my god! Ugh, I pretty much want to cry... that's how you know you did a great job with the poem, though. The emotion is POWERFUL. Awesome, great job!

Wait. is this a happy ending or a terrible ending. I could interpret it two ways. 1. the father is a different man that eliza fell in love with and is truly going to show Real love to the baby or 2. the father is eliza's father and he's going to do the same things to this child that he did to eliza. I HAVE to know. I have read this before. I don't know why i did not leave a comment, I though i already had! boy, am i glad that this is fiction. I never want to think this stuff is real, even though the hard truth is that it is. This could be happening to the person you would never suspect in school or the one who is quiet and troubled. You don't know. We've got to show love to everyone. because you could be the ONLY one that shows real love to a person in their life. You could save someone's life just by saying hello to them. you never know. This is a fantastic piece. VERY thought-provoking, indeed.
