Treated Harshly

Judged and treated harshly
by family for reasons unknown.
Talked about with such regret and bitterness,
even I didn’t know why I should love someone like myself.

Dirty rumors were spread across the globe.
While I slept, they whispered
about how “terrible” of a person I was.
The opposite of how I felt about myself.

I didn’t know why they hated me,
why they treated me the worst
out of all the children.
I would’ve given anything not to live in that pain.

I was left to battle those scary feelings
of wishing I had never been born.
That’s a real struggle no one should ever have to face,
let alone a 12-year old child.

Every child deserves to feel loved.
