"Abused" is a poem that points at the abuse of a tennage girl in our society today.
Poet: Chiemerie Ozurumba
You couldn't see her worth
All you could see was her faults
She had no chance to get along
How would she know she was wrong
She traded her pride, yes!, but it wasn't by choice
Then who are you to cast her a stone, are you her judge?
Even if you are, you still have your wrongs
She was only lost, weak & young
She left without a word, but that was meek
You took advantage of her, cuz you knew she was weak
But, put yourself in her shoes & taste her pain
Waking each dawn with more worries, fear & less gain
She was jovial but you mistook her to be naughty
She gave a smile & you took it to be nothing
You snub her cuz she wore a rag
Then forgot change is like a phone, you never know when it will ring
You smiled at your mother, but her first love is gone
She wished she knew her, but she left after she was born
Raised by a father who left when she was teen
Now found herself in this mess, but that's how life has been
She could have become better if only you were her best
Pushing her too hard only twirled her to a beast
You let drown a sweet life you would have saved
Now you live in regrets after let her dream wasted
Oh!, how would you have left your emotion define your action.

Your poem is sending out a powerful message full of truth. So many young people find themselves in situations they cannot control and as a result are prey to those who only want to use them. Society as a whole needs to take a long hard look at itself and come up with a solution.
