      Blue Ribbon Against Child Abuse pass it on please


            Sarah

            My name is Sarah
            I am but three,
            My eyes are swollen
            I cannot see,

            I must be stupid,
            I must be bad,
            What else could have made
            My daddy so mad?

            I wish I were better,
            I wish I weren't ugly,
            Then maybe my Mommy
            Would still want to hug me.

            I can't speak at all,
            I can't do a wrong
            Or else I'm locked up
            All the day long.

            When I awake I'm all alone
            The house is dark
            My folks aren't home.

             When my Mommy does come
            I'll try and be nice,
            So maybe I'll get just
            One whipping tonight.

            Don't make a sound!
            I just heard a car
            My daddy is back
            From Charlie's Bar.

            I hear him curse
            My name he calls
            I press myself
            Against the wall.

            I try and hide
            From his evil eyes
            I'm so afraid now
            I'm starting to cry.

            He finds me weeping
            He shouts ugly words,
            He says its my fault
            That he suffers at work.

            He slaps me and hits me
            And yells at me more,
            I finally get free
            And I run for the door.

            He's already locked it
            And I start to bawl,
            He takes me and throws me
            Against the hard wall.

            I fall to the floor
            With my bones nearly broken,
            And my daddy continues
            With more bad words spoken.

            "I'm sorry!", I scream
            But its now much too late
            His face has been twisted
            Into unimaginable hate.

            The hurt and the pain
            Again and again
            Oh please God, have mercy!
            Oh please let it end!

            And he finally stops
            And heads for the door,
            While I lay there motionless
            Sprawled on the floor.

            My name is Sarah
            And I am but three,
            Tonight my daddy
            Murdered me.


            There are thousands of kids out there just like Sarah. And you can help.

           Please pass this poem on as a Blue Ribbon Against Child Abuse because as
      crazy as it might sound, it might just indirectly change a life.
       Hey, you NEVER know.


            Please forward if you are
