"Live for tomorrow, remember today, and smile because you survived yesterday," by Me


What did I do wrong sir?

I worked hard today,

Kept working my hands in the fields,

And dug trenches for the water

 

Ahhhhh !

Why do you beat me sir?

I feed the pigs like mama said

She changed my name like the countess decreed

I work hard and strong like you want

What else can I do?

 

WWWHHHHHYYYYYYYY (hard breathing)

Do you hurt me so?

Mama told me stories

About a man in shining Armor

That is my father

I see your kind eyes to her

Even when you yell

I see a great master

Behind the whip

I see a loving father to your children

In the house

 

(slam of body on floor)

 

I try to keep the kids happy with me

Help them see good in you like I do

But the welts

The bruises

The tears on our faces

Makes my claims

Sound like the trash I collect

 

(slapping sound & a child's scream)

 

DADDY WHY DO YOU TREAT ME SO!?!??

 

(final thump on floor)
