Child of Rage- Dramatic monologue
When I found the baby birds, my new mommy told me
Not to play with them, because their mama wouldn’t
Want the babies if they were touched by somebody else.
Sometimes I think I’m like that. Like nobody wants me
Because Daddy touched me until I bled.
I still have those nightmares of me when I was one
Year old and Daddy falling on me and hurting me with
A part of himself.
And even though my new mommy and daddy tell me they
Love me, I don’t care. ‘Cause I know it’s all about being strongest.
Daddy was the strongest. That’s why he hurt me.
If you want to be the strongest you have to know
How to get rid of everybody that stands in your way. That’s why
I’m going to kill Jon.
I know he’s my brother but I’m the strongest so he has to die. Plus
He’s annoying. Mommy and Daddy are annoying too. They always
Tell me what to do, and I don’t like it, so
I’m going to kill them.
At bedtime they lock my door shut tight. They’re afraid
I’ll get out and hurt them and Jon. They know I want to kill them
At nighttime because I don’t like them seein’ me do it
But they can feel me do it.
My mommy and daddy are always making me
Mad. Like that one time when I was hitting Jon’s head
On the concrete floor in the basement.
I heard Mommy’s footsteps in the kitchen. Coming
To stop me. I couldn’t hide it ‘cause both me and Jon had blood
On us. Mommy is always stopping me from doing stuff.
She yells at me when I take her pins and poke
Jon and the dogs and kitties. I always poke a lot
Not a little bit.
There was one time I stole the knives from the kitchen. I was talking
To Mommy about them. “I don’t know where they are”,
I said with a smile. But I had them. I needed them so I could kill
Jon and Mommy with them.
They make me so mad.
That’s why when she wasn’t paying
Attention to me I went back to that bird’s nest. And I snap snap snapped
