He hit me
beat me
called me dead
put these thoughts in my head
I cried myself to sleep at night
trying to block out the fight
when he hurt me
and what he called me in the light
i cry myself to sleep
and i softly begin to weep
he doesn't love me
and never will

The author's comments:
I wrote this because as a child I was abused by my step-father. There are many teens who have been through the pain I have and they should know that no matter what your always loved. And you should never think your not. Just some fathers were hurt when they were kids and thats how they take their anger out my mom always said. I know that even being hurt by my step father i will always be loved by someone else.
