DIED OF ABUSE

To little sister who died of abuse

Hush, little sister
Please don't cry
I wish I could be there
To sing you a lullaby
I can see your arms
Bloodied and bruised

That's strange, little sister
Mine were like that too
I know you scream
When Daddy's there
Hush, little sister

I know you're scared
I can see the way
He's hurting you
I'm sorry, little sister
He did that to me too
I know that people

Ignore what's going on at home
That makes me angry, little sister
You shouldn't have to be alone
Hey, little sister
You want to know why I'm not
there?

It's a sad story, little sister
But people should care
You see, little sister
One day Daddy got high
You were asleep in your crib
So you didn't hear my cry

He screamed at me
And smashed my head against
the door
While you slept, little sister
I died on the floor
You know, little sister

I don't think that I would have
died
If someone had only bothered
To listen to my cries
But hush, little sister
Daddy's coming home
Quick, get into bed

You don't want him to find you
alone
I'm sorry little sister
He's in a bad mood
Run while you can
Uh oh little sister
He's lifting his belt

Scream while you can, little sister
Call for help
Hush little sister
You don't need to cry
No one can hurt you
You're in my arms tonight.

From a boy who survived abuse but lost his only sister to their father's brutality.
