how could someone do soming like that to a 8 year old that is so wrong i am only 15th and i would never in any way hurt a little kid
Irene
Wow. This was a great poem. As soon as I read the first line, I knew that I could relate to it perfectly. I, too was sexually abused by my father when I was about 10, but i didn't know it was wrong. I was such a naive and innocent child and didn't figure out that he shouldn't have been doing that until 2 years later! 2 years! he told me that it was for my own good and that he loved me! THis is a BEAUTIFULLY written poem from the heart. and that's why it is the most beautiful of all

This is such a tearjerker!! Anyone who has been abused, knows someone who has been abused, or has no idea what it is like will hold their breathe for a moment after reading this poem. It is touching.
Melanie
Wow! The pain a person can feel just reading the poem. I can imagine what you felt and still feel. I been through something similar.

I was raped and molested by my father for years starting when I was 12 and ending when I ran away at 16. The pain never goes away but we learn to deal with it. I also write poetry about my pain and it really helps a lot.
Brenda
I know exactly how you felt, I went through the same thing. I am a strong person and I learned to get on with my life and not let what happend to me take it over and ruin the rest of it for me.
Hil
This brought tears to my eyes. I was sexually molested as a child and it went on for 14 years. I thought that by telling people that I was molested that I had dealt with the fact that it did indeed happen...I fooled myself[by thinking that way] for 8 years. Now I am free. It still affects me but I know a lot more about myself by bringing the memory of it all back. as much as it scarred my heart[and body] I have finally come to realize that it was not my fault all those years. I was only a little girl. and although I will never be able to forgive or forget the man who did that to me, I can live again. I have many poems on this, I would love to share them with you.
Melissa
I too was in the same situation that you have been in and have found that writing poetry was the most sucessful way for me to release all of the emotion that was built up inside me. It has been seven years, and I still write just to vent. I hope that your petry heals the wounds inside of you too.
