Heartbroken Child

by Marissa aged 13

I sit by the water
Examining the sea
I dance with the waves
And I think about me
How you tear me apart
And laugh at my burns
I don’t ever want to hear those words
You bruise me and hurt me
My heart is on fire
Manipulating happiness
To hateful desire
I take a deep breath
I go out in the wild
Singing the song
Of a Heartbroken Child
