Daddy left for the bar,
Stealing away the the car,
Soon Mama put me to bed,
And kissed me on the head,
Daddy was still not home,
He left us all alone,

Daddy came home just after four,
Mama was angrier then ever before,
Daddy was so mad and drunk he left the house,
I listened in bed as quiet as a mouse,


Daddy wasn't home for breakfast,
And when lunch time came at last,
Daddy didnt show up,
Mama was quiet, sipping at a cup,

Daddy came home tonight,
His eyes looked out of sight,
Mama  pushed him away with all her might,
Daddy looked past the light,

Daddy took mama to the bedroom,
She screamed and there was a big boom,
Daddy walked out of the bedroom very tall,
I shrieked and ran down the hall,

Daddy caught me, I felt small,
Then he threw me against the wall,
He hit me and punched me,
My eyes hurt so bad I couldnt see,
Daddy stopped.

My name is Katie,
I am three,
And on this night my Daddy murdered me.
As you got from reading the poem its about child abuse, which is horrible. Its sopposed to be in more of a kid view but it goes for both. Its not the best but it gets the point out please comment!

That was so sad. My best friend's name is Katie, so naturally I freaked out when I read the last bit. Really nice work.

This story reminds me so much of what happened to my best friend, but luckily she and her mother survived and got away. I can't understand why someone would do that to their own family....

I really love your poem, it's so emotional, real and shocking.
