My savior, Mommy Chapter 5Crash!
I heard a crash
Is it Mommy?
I slowly get out of bed and walk out
But wait, my flashlight
I can't forget my flashlight
I hide behind the table
I see people
There's someone else
It's, a man? The man is hurting Mommy
He took off her clothes
Mommy sees me and gets angry
Mommy wait, what happened
Baby, you're supposed
Ow! Mommy locked me in my room
I hear more noises, and Mommy screaming
My savior, Mommy Chapter 4Ow, don't touch my arm Ricky, it hurts
'Oh, I'm sorry Hope, didn't mean to hurt ya'
It's ok Ricky
'Hope, why does your arm hurt? What happened?'
Oh don't worry, Ms. Keeling, it's just a small booboo
'Here, let me see it'
'Really, I is okay Ms. Keeling'
Mommy told me to never show anyone my booboo's
Show nobody, she says
Show nobody baby, ok?
Ok Mommy, I swears to not show them
That's a good girl, good girl Hope
I open my eyes and look at her
She's so pretty
Mommy says those people are dangerous
Why Mommy? I asks her, why?
Because they ask too many questions, baby. Too many questions
But Mommy, that just means they cares for us
Listen baby, I know best, ok?
Ok, if you say so Mommy, if you say so
'Really Ms. Keeling, I is fine. I tripped on my laces walking'
She looks worried, but stands up straight and smiles her nice smile
'If you're sure, Hope, but if you ever need to talk,
I'll listen. Ok, Hope?'
I smile, she's so nice
She always helps
My savior, Mommy Chapter 3I got a booboo
But it also looks pretty
Mommy gave me the booboo
Mommy is also pretty
I ask God,
God, why do the prettiest things
Give us the most pain?
Mommy hears me ask God
I'm sorry baby, she cried
She hugs me
She keeps saying
I'm sorry baby, I hurt you
I love you baby, I'm so sorry
I've been a really bad mother
She cries and I look up to the skies
God, why do the prettiest things
Fall down so easily?
My savior, Mommy Chapter 6Today I made a new friend
He's really nice
And funny, and friendly!
His name is-
I forgot, he doesn't have a name!
Silly isn't it? To not have a name
I laugh and talk with him a lot
But Mommy does like that
Mommy asks, who are you talking with baby?
Mommy is silly
Don't you see him Mommy? He's right here!
I grab his hand and walk him over to Mommy
But Mommy looks confused
Don't be crazy, baby, she says
Don't be crazy, Hope, there's no one there
Yes there is Mommy
There is, I tell her, there is
But she won't believe
Why won't Mommy believe me!
I'm getting angry, Mommy, see him!
I'm not crazy! Momm-
Don't you ever raise your voice at me, Hope
Don't you ever
I couldn't take it from your father so I'm not taking it from you
I touch where Mommy slapped me, hard, on my cheek
It hurts, it stings, like the feel better juice
Don't worry, my friend tells me, don't worry
He hugs me
I look up
Why doesn't anyone see him
So that's when I gave him his name
My pet, SadnessMy pet, Sadness
My pet, Sadness
I hate you
Never knew how to treat my Sadness
Like a pet I was forced to take care of
But had no idea how
No first instinct
No idea on how to love it
But an idea on how to hate it
Sadness, I hate you
I hate you I hate you I hate you
The thing we have with each other is a love
I never like to show you off to people
So I keep you to myself
And paint your portrait
Into what I call art
You are the reason of creating
What I am known for
Sometimes I wonder why you’re so clingy
You always bother me
You pull on my hair
And scratch at my body
You whine for me to pay more attention
And accept you and to believe in you
I think that if I smile long enough, hard enough, good enough
That you’ll go away
But you see through that happiness
I’ll lock you up in front of others so
They don’t get bothered by you
As long as they don’t see you
They won’t bother to ask
