You Ain’t Never Been Loved

“Please, I just wanna go home!”
“Why you wanna go back to those who hit you? To those people who think you ain’t worth the time o’ day? Why you wanna go back to ’em?”
“They’re my real family”
“Sorry sugar, you ain’t got no real family no more. We your family now.”
“But…please! I miss them!”
“Why? Child, they don’t love you! They have never wanted you! They never treated you right and you ain’t never been loved by them. Why else would they beat your frail body til it’s black and blue? Why else would they starve you when you thin as a rail? No, child. You be grateful for what the good Lord done, putting you in the care of others! Those who will love you!”
“Please just let me go…”
“One day you’ll see my child. You’ll see the injustices against you.”

-Chickadee
