‘Daddy, Please Don’t’
Every day I see mommy crying. ‘Don’t cry mommy, please don’t cry’, and she wipes her tears while she is holding me close to her.
Daddy comes home and mommy always tells me, really quietly, to ‘be a good boy now, Daddy’s home and I need you to go to your room and stay there okay? go, go on’.
Daddy is shouting at mommy again. I see through my opened door my mommy on the floor crying: She has a bloody face again.
Daddy see’s me and yells, ‘get over here you little bastard. see? see what you made me do? you little shit’. mommy is begging him to stop, but it’s too late. Daddy hits me across my face and it hurts. But I won’t cry.
Daddy hits me again. Then he leaves, slamming the front door.
I crawl over to my mommy and we both sit huddled, and cry.
