looking for poems about difficult childhood

DistractionDistraction Posts: 465 Listening Ear
I was going to put this in creative but I don't know if someone will stumbles across it that doesn't want to 

I was wondering if anyone knowns of any good poem websites or even just a poem that describes something about one or more of these things:

-  growing up with an alcholic parent 
- Feeling responsible for keeping a parent alive 
- leaving a parent at a young age by choice 
- The children of alcholic parents 
- The aftermath of emotional abuse/ neglect 
- witnessing beatings 
- left feeling hollow and lost after a difficult childhood  
- guilt of leaving family members/people behind 
- losing siblings 
- wanting a parent to fight for them 
- waiting on a call from a parent knowing it will never come
- depressed parent 
- being forgotten about by family 

I tried google but the two main websites that come up are family friends poems and poem hunter, looking for something different as I've had a look at most of the poems on those websites, even if you have your own would be helpful. 

Thanks x
