A poem about a girl. Taylor.

In the classroom

She sits at the back

Wearing pigtails

And a pink knapsack

She puts on a smile and raises her hand

To answer the question

The teacher demands

But nobody knows

What her true feelings are

The cuts and scrapes

The bruises and scars

Inside of her

These things have bloomed

From her home

Dark with gloom


She dreads the time

When she must go

Back to the place

She’s forced to call home

As she walks

Down the road

She shivers with fear

Not the cold


She thinks what will happen

When she gets home tonight

Curled up in the corner

Quailing in fright

The throwing and yelling

She knows will not end

She thinks,


As she steps ‘round the bend

She takes a deep breathe

And rings the bell

Then the door opens

She steps into hell

Very sad, talking about an issue that affects so many kids around the world. But i believe this poem is very well told, its not over-dramatic like some poems about abuse tend to be. Well done:)
