Abuse Poem

Physical Abuse By Brother

I am about 14 now. My brother use to always abuse me when I was like 9-12. I finally made it end. But I was almost dead that day in the poem.

I could be sitting at home,
Doing nothing at all,
My brother will come in with an angry look,
I run to hide,
I am crying on the inside,
I know what he's going to do,
He found me and guess what he did,
He kicked me,
He punched me,
He picked me up and threw me against the wall,
My parents don't know,
I am too scared to tell,
Cause He kill me,
He told me he will,
But now I am older,
And he is gone,
I always cry,
Thinking about what happened,
Gives me pain on the inside.

    My Brother is 3 years younger than me. But he abuses me too. My parents don't believe me, because he's younger than I am. If I fight back, I get in trouble- for defending myself. I'm so scared. He's tried to choke me, and he punches me, and kicks me, he slaps me, and cusses. He lowers my self esteem. I feel I'm trapped...and I don't know how to escape....

    I know how you feel my brother is 2 years older then me and he raped me when I was 10 and he was 12. I don't even understand how he knew what he was doing. He made me touch him and do stuff and I will never forgive him for that. I can't ever trust again because of what he did. I've never told any one. I told a few friends once, they're not my friends anymore. I wish someone would understand. I'm just sick of this all of it but I really did like your poem

    My brother physically abuses me he punches me and he has tried to choke me before and he had held knives to my neck before. I have told my mom and all she says is do not aggravate him and I don't, like today I went downstairs and I was making lettuce and then he started swearing at me and threatening to kill me and saying I should go kill myself, he twists my arms and it really hurts I'm 15 he's 17 he's really strong. I have fought back but he always wins. I am scared sometimes I am afraid he will actually kill me what should I do..?

    My brother abuses and fights with my whole family. He yells and breaks things. He beats me and my little brother. He used to sexually abuse me when I was little. He has health problems. He's 6''4" and 220 pounds of pure destruction. I only told one friend. Mom sees every thing that he does and doesn't do a thing about it. I wish things like this didn't happen in our own families. I'm 12 and in a very religious family. I don't understand why things like this happen.

    I understand what it's like to be abused by a sibling. I am 17 while my brother is 16. He used to only abuse me every once in a while, but now it happens every day. He abuses me both physically and mentally. He is taller and stronger than me. His mental abuse consists of cussing at me and calling me all kinds of names. Sometimes he'll even threaten to kill me. His physical abuse consists of slapping me, punching me, kicking me, hitting me really hard with my pillows, throwing random stuff at me, and suffocating me by completely covering my head with pillows and covers. He abuses me despite my being a girl. Even when I am crying and begging him to leave me alone, he still abuses me anyway. I just feel hopeless.

    I know exactly how you are feeling. My brother from the ages of 3-9 use to beat the shit out of me and then touch and rape me. I was to afraid to tell my mom because I knew she would never believe me. When I told her about him raping me he denied it and held a gun to my head and threatened to kill me. It took 10 times to tell for her to finally listen. Then he went to boot camp then jail. Now I have no clue where he's at.

    I don't know what it is like to go through extreme abuse like that, but for a few years when I was younger (I'm 15 now) my brother would whisper threats in my ear and steal my money and gift cards and stuff. Once I woke up in the middle of the night and he was in my bed...

    My brother is younger than me but he is bigger. He abuses me emotionally. He also beats me. I can take it, but I know it's going to get worse.

    My brother is 2 years younger than me. He calls me bad names and spits on me. He threatens me with knives. Once he actually tried to kill me. I don't know what to do. I can't tell Mum because it would break her heart. Still, I can't go on like this.

    Hello:) I was reading all the stories and felt I should share mine! I am currently 30 years old and my brother is 28! We are not kids anymore! He has mentally and emotionally abused me since I was 13. Called me all kinds filthy names and still to this day does! He has also physically assaulted me on differ rent occasions. Recently he decided to assault because I took my car keys from him (he wanted to drive drunk with no license to get food) he threw me down I hit my face off the table and my nose bled everywhere. I have bruises all over! 13 years ago he was charged with assault with a weapon for splitting my forehead open with a CD! I got 10 stitches! I will never have anything to do with him. He is a grown man now and still abuses me from time to time! He needs serious help but chooses to ignore it! I wash my hands of him! I will never have a relationship with him and it breaks my heart!

    My brother abuses me. I'm 14 he's 13. This is unusual I guess since he's younger but it's true. He has physically abused me since I can remember and I have put up with it for as long. What else can I do with him? I'm actually afraid to tell Mom because if I do he might hurt her. I'm not the only one he has hit before either. There was a time he got angry and hit a younger cousin of ours. It's one thing for him to hit me; I'm used to it. But my cousin is a child! Now is it just me or do we have a major problem in our house?

    I know exactly how you all feel. I have two brothers one of them is 12 and the other one is 19. My little brother is always insulting or hitting me but sometimes I can't take it anymore that I feel that I want kill myself or cut myself, every night I start to cry because of the awful things my little brother says to me. My big brother is always sexually harassing me but the bad part is that I let him do it and I never tell my mom cause it will break her heart and I don't want to see her cry anymore, I just wish everything would stop!!! I can't wait till I'm 18 but it will take 3 more years for me to be 18. I just I have to endure it for 3 more years and it will be all over, I hope.
