My Name Is Sasha My Sister Is Leigh I am six And she is three
Our dads always mad He screams and he yells I don’t think he likes us It’s easy to tell
Mums only kind When dad’s not around And when he is home She hardly makes a sound
Mums always out, Never home Dads always drunk, And always alone
As soon as we hear Those jingly keys We run and hide We run and plea
We find a place And curl up tight I hold her hand And she holds mine
And soon enough Dad then walks in Don’t make a sound, don’t say a word I pray inside, deep within
But Leigh, she cannot help herself For the pain is just too much “O-God” she yells “Why are you so mean?”
He doesn’t like what she has said And beats her even more And with one last hit Hard and strong, he pulls away and watches
She takes one last Gasp of air Our hands still holding Then falls to the ground where I sat And doesn’t move a muscle
I stare at him My eyes so blue He looks at me And yells “O you!”
“How dare you Make me so mad This is all your fault Go cry be sad!”
My name is Sasha My sister is Leigh I am six And my beautiful sister was only three
That day my Daddy Murdered her My best friend She was my world
We stuck together Through thick and thin But now she’s gone I’m lost within
When I was six my sister three My Daddy murdered Leigh Since that day I have not spoke For it’s speaking that made her die.
Changes in school performance and attendance. Abused children may have difficulty concentrating in school or have excessive absences. A child may also present as an overachiever and possibly be hyper-vigilant about grades or school activities.
Lack of personal care or hygiene. Children may appear uncared for or exhibit poor hygiene as a result of parental neglect or sexual abuse.
Risk-taking behaviors. Young people who are being abused may engage in high-risk activities such as using drugs or alcohol, carrying a weapon or overly sexualized behavior.
If a child discloses to you, don’t confront the abuser.
Let the child know you believe them and don’t blame them; talk to a professional.
This blog is all about child abuse. What the definition is, what the signs are, and how to deal with it. It is hard to believe that there are individuals out there that would harm one of God’s most precious gifts, but I was one of them.
This page is for everybody in the world who has ever suffered from Domestic Violence. It is not just for women and children, as men suffer, too. In fact they suffer in more silence than women do. But I'm tired of nothing been done and that victims are simply mere statistics in one form or the other.But together we can try to get governments all over the world to help now , before we are headline news this time as murder statistics rather than victims of abuse.We the survivors have to ensure that we protect the next generation of children so that they are not ignorant to any form of abuse,and will not tolerate it in anyway
