About the Poem
I wrote this poem about my life. Most would think being alone is wrong. But to me it would of been a miracle from God. I was hurt by my step-father like no girl should. He made me realize that life is valuable. He took away from me 10 years of my childhood.
I am now 16 years old and I still have those days I want to run away. I finally told someone two years ago, and I was set free from his wickedness to me. I want everyone to know out there. If you believe it wouldn't happen, think again. It happens everyday to innocent people. When you read this it is my struggle that I deal with, I don't want you to feel sad. I just want you to know it does happen everyday all over the world.
To Cry Alone....
|To cry alone....
In my heart there is this despair.
That no matter where I turn you'll
always be there.
When I cry alone at night, your face
always says goodnight.
I scream in vain and shiver in fear.
Why can't you leave me to cry alone?
I no longer love you or care.
Why do you jog my memory, when you
know I hate you beyond despair?
The clouds now gray are fogging me in.
I no longer see the light.
I pull my knees up to my chest.
And pray with all my might.
That one day I will no longer be scared
of you in the night.
A tear drop trickles down my cheek.
I shudder with a heart of vain.
I know not why you did this to me.
But even though, you seem to cry through me.
When I cry alone at night,
I see your face smiling.
And yet to cry alone at night
my memory always seems to jog me.
