So many nights I lay there, eyes wide open. So many words yelled in my ear, leaving me, beyond heart broken. Why does God make me live on, just to live in pain? Why do I have to wake up every day, eyes full of tears, again and again? Days like these make me believe there is no God. No God would put the ones he loves through the kind of pain that I feel. I wish there was a God to help through this pain and sorrow...because this pain is real...and it will not be better by tomorrow...God...if you are there...I must ask you this...who gives the one they love, a mother who doesn’t love them? A mother who treats their daughter like dirt? A mother who makes their daughter question their worth? A mother who makes them want to die on a daily basis...a mother who doesn’t listen when you tell them they’re hurting...a mother who rolls her eyes when you cry...a mother who tells you to shut up when you say you wanna die...a mother who has put her hands on them more then once...why give me a mother... who just doesn’t care?...why make my life...so unfair?

I grew up in a series of violent foster homes, añways asking the same question as you..... why? What kind of God would allow such abuse to the smallest of His children? I'm 48 now and STILL ask that question. Life is a struggle for me because of the way I was raised.... I cant trust anyone. I hope you find the answer that I failed to find. Just remember., no matter how bad was or is.... its in YOUR power to change it. I wish I'd had someone tell me that 45 yrs ago.
This is a very well word write.... trust me I feel it. Great job on this.
