Musta Done Somethin

I don't know what I did
but I musta done somethin
Maybe its cuz I yelled at mommy bout eating brussel 'prouts
Or cuz I cut my hair to look like my barbie
That made mommy eye-sad

It mighta been somethin
Little, or somethin big
maybe its cuz I had my eyes open when I was spozed to be prayin
Or cuz I wasn't listenin in church
That made daddy wisper angry

Maybe its cuz I kicked the nurse last time, I hate needles
Or cuz I tole the docter not to push too hard
Cuz it hurts the badlyist when he does
That made mommy cry

Maybe its cuz I was cryin bout haveing to go to the hospital agan
Or cuz I wudden't let em take my blood to the test last time
I don wanna run outa blood, you see
An they want so much, all the time

The only thing that makes sense
Is that I did somethin
Somethin naughty
To deserve the spiders
that live 'side my guts
Just chewin and chewin
they must always be hungry
Cuz the chewin pain never stops

It goes on and on
My teddy bear crys with me bout it
He thinks its not ever fair that I hurt
he don't say it, but thats wat he thinks
I know him, you see

I realy dont wanna go back to the hospital again, mommy
I feal better, I do

Cryin, I wisper to my teddy bear
“I just musta done somethin...”

this is so heartbreaking and so well done! I really loved how you wrote it with misspellings - made it much more genuine. "The only thing that makes sense Is that I did somethin Somethin naughty To deserve the spiders that live 'side my guts Just chewin and chewin they must always be hungry Cuz the chewin pain never stops" ^that is AMAZING

Thank you. :) The only thing in hindsight that I would have changed is "badlyest", "baddest" would have worked better. :P But I'm glad you liked it!! :) -Lilac
