She lies on the floor, looking up at him. What did he do that for? Her eyes look so dim He looks at her and begins to cry What did he do that for? He doesn't know why. Her limp body is battered and bruised Whose fists did it? His! No-one knew she was abused. She was so good, this is the one time she said 'no' He knows he didn't do what he should, He thinks maybe he should go. She lies there, she's dead, It's really not fair, All because said 'NO!' Why is this man walking free? She's been abused from the age of three, she was used as a punchbag, did anyone see? She's lying lifeless on the floor, He still doesn't know what to do, Her eyes are saying 'what did you do that for? She loved him so much, that he knew. He was her Dad, she didn't know, that he was bad, or she wouldn't have said, 'no'. Just think about what you'd do, if a child came and said, 'I want to talk to you', my Dad hits me on the head. Would you let her suffer? Would you ignore her plea? Would you tell her mother? Would you be too blind to see? She's happy now, she's with the angels, up there, she doesn't know how she still thinks he does care. She didn't know it wasn't ok, for her Daddy to hit or treat her that way, He is remorseful, just a bit. But, who else will he kill that way? If you know this tale, if it rings a bell, remember to say and not to fail, remember to tell.

Oh dorypanda I am sorry I don't think I can say much here - the tears are ocursing down my cheeks and my heart breaks for all those children who have to suffer such abuse! I was an abused wife and that hurt me badly enough mentally but for a child to go through it is just inconceivable! I would ALWAYS try to get help for a child I even suspected was in this type of situation, rather get it wrong than risk a childs life! xxx
