Inspired by the book "Cupboard Boy": By P T Saunders
To my Father,

Why did you abandon me?
Did you ever love me?
Was I, for you a mistake?

To my step-father,

why did you beat me and my step-siblings?
Why did you make us go without food for days-on-end?
Why did you laugh out loud when you made us cry?
Why did you beat my mum every New Year's Eve?
Did you hate us so much?

To my mother,

Why did you fall for and move in with my abuser?
Why didn't you protect me?
Why did you let him beat you?
Why did you let him beat me?
Did you ever love me?
Was I a mistake?
How did you become so hard of heart?

To Social Services,

Why didn't you protect us?
Why did you ignore the obvious signs of abuse?
Why didn't you remove us from harm?
Why didn't you do your Job?
Why are you still not protecting children properly?
