Her Terrible Tale

September 5, 2008
By Autumn Myers, Howell, NJ

Thoughts consume her mind
She just wants to find a place to go
Where she can leave them all behind
And finally feel peace within
Wants to run and hide
She needs some space
But its quite hard
To get away from that place
But for some reason
They wont let her go
Oh why oh why
She begs to know
But now is the time
Where all the lying begins
Coming slowly
Just creeping in
They hide the truth
Oh so very well
But it hurts
And the pain starts to swell
But then it all starts
No one would listen
So they hit her again, and so she cried
And so, in the kitchen
Is where she eventually learned to hide
Threatened to stay silent
She was forced to abide
So afraid to speak up
To protect herself
She used the makeup
And kept her mouth shut
Then one day
She cut and she cut
But to our dismay
She had never woke up
