In the dark
I lie alone;
In the dark,.
where they call home.

I should not feel
this awful hate.
I hear him, ow;
he’s at the gate.

Key in the lock,
I can hear;
I am paralyzed
with fear.

Please don’t let him come up the stairs.
Please don’t let him find me hiding there.
Under the bed, I start to scurry;
Up the stairs, he comes in a hurry.

Into my room,
he feels no shame.
Somehow I know,
I am to blame.

I am so bad,
can you all see?
Why does daddy
punish me?

He leaves my room,
smirk upon his face.
I’m now alone —
my saving grace.

Could someone, please, help me to see
why my daddy punishes me?
