found this, I had written this 3 years ago and forgot about it, but I feel it's worth sharing.
It's an Anti-Child Abuse Poem I made. Re-reading it just makes me feel all sad again.
Her name was Aurora She was only five But this is what happened When she was still alive
Her dad was a drunk Her mom an addict Her parents always kept her Locked in the attic
Her only friend was a little toy bear It was old and worn out And was missing some hair
She always talked to it When no one was around She'd lay there and hug it Not a peep of sound
Until her parents came home And unlocked the door Some more and more pain She'd have to endure
A bruise on her leg A scar on her face How could she be In such a horrible place?
But she grabs for her bear And softly cries She loves her parents But they want her to die
She sits in the corner Quiet but thinking, "God, why? Why is My life always sinking?"
Such a sad life For a sad little kid She'd get beaten and beaten For all that she did
Then one fateful night Her mom came home high The poor child was hit and slapped As the hours went by
Then her mom suddenly Grabbed for a blade It was sharp and pointy It was one that she made
She thrust the blade In the little girl's chest, "You deserve to die You worthless little pest!"
Then the mom walked out And left the girl slowly dying She grabbed for her bear And again started crying
The Police showed up At the small little house They quickly barged in it was silent as a mouse
One officer slowly Opened a door To find the sad little girl Lying on the floor
It must have been bad To go through so much harm But at least she died With her best friend in her arms

There are a few forced lines in there, but the overall theme is sad but a good story. You told it well, but I'd recommend going over some of the poetry in order to tell the story without forcing certain word to rhyme and/or forcing certain things to happen within one line whilst other thing that normally take the same amount of time are happening over the course of several stanzas (if you get what I mean). =]
