God, Make Me Deaf



God hear my prayer

And make me deaf

So I will not hear

The shouting and tears


Their voices raised in anger

Words unclear through my walls

I cover my head to drown out

The sounds of their hate


I hug my teddy for comfort

At the sound of the first slap

My mother cries out as

More slaps land.


I feel hot tears coarse down my face

I curl up in a ball and cry out

Please god make me deaf

Because I donít want to hear



Feedback is my only payment for this work,

So please pay me well...
