My name is Sarah, i am but three.
My eyes are swollen, i cannot see.
I must be stupid, i must be bad,
What else could have made my Daddy so mad?
I wish i were better, i wish i weren't ugly,
Then maybe my Mommy would still want to hug me.
I can't speak at all, i can't do wrong.
Or else i'm locked up, all the day long.
When i awake, i'm all alone,
The house is dark, my folks aren't home.
When mommy does come, i'll try and be nice.
So maybe i'll get just one whipping tonight.
Shh, don't make a sound, i just heard a car.
My Daddy is back from Charlie's Bar.
I hear him curse, my name he calls.
I press myself against the wall.
I try and hide form his evil eyes,
I'm so afraid now, i'm starting to cry.
He finds me weeping and shouts ugly words,
He says it's my fault, that he suffers at work.
He slaps me and hits me and yells at me more,
I finally break free and i run for the door.
He's already locked it and i start to bawl,
He gets me and throws me against the hard wall.
Now i lay there with bones nearly broken,
And my Daddy continues with more bad words spoken.
"I'm sorry!" I scream, but it' now much to late,
His face has been twisted to unimaginable hate.
The hurt and the pain again and again,
"Oh please God, have mercy, oh please let it end."
He finally stops and heads for the door,
While i lay there motionless, sprawled on the floor.
My name is Sarah and i am but three,
Tonight my Daddy, murdered me....
