Black, blue, up now down,
Bruise after bruise line my arms,
My record of pain.

This haiku came to me when I thought about all the children in the world who are abused, and who abuse themselves.

I really love haikus, because they're so short, but they can say so much. It's kind of sad that people abuse themselves and are abused. This is really good.

Wow, short but has a strong message. Personally I can relate to it (mom wasn't the nicest person) so this really touched my heart. Good job :) 5 stars!
