The Little girl Sarah - Author Unknown

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.
