I Was The Child

By MirrorEye

I was the child born into a world of hate.
I was the child tormented by his fate.

I was the child you tortured and abused.
I was the child that everyone used.

I was the child who was always played.
The child who befriended a razor blade.

I was the child who was always depressed.
I was the child always wishing to be dead.

I was the child was bullied and teased.
The child who was beaten till he fell on his knees.

I was the child who picked up a knife.
I was the child who ended his life.

I am the child you buried last night.
The child who's face will haunt you every night.

I was the child born into a world of hate.
I was the child tormented by his fate.

    Complete irony! Whilst writing this poem I actually considered that couplet, but decided to go with the one written down. Thank you for that advice

    I love the contents of your poem and the rhyme is almost perfect. though I feel this one couplet needs a little work: "I was the child who was always depressed. I was the child always wishing to be dead. " I was the child who was always depressed, I was the child who felt unblessed ....just a suggestion. please don't take my small critic to heart. I write always in rhyme. that is my bane. it is a very good idea and couplet.
