Abuse Poem

Poem About the Effects of Child Abuse

I am a grown woman who has been a victim of child molestation for years. I was raped as a teenager and then gang-raped again as an adult. I have struggled through life as most abused children do, but I am living proof that no matter what we go through in life...... we all have the strength to get through it and past it, if we allow ourselves to.

I was molested by my father and all these years later I still get these feelings he's standing over me and this poem spoke to me and it's so true we still live it daily! You are not alone!

A Cry For Help

©

Published: August 2013

A child so small
     so vulnerable and weak
helpless, powerless
     not allowed to speak.
Lying awake in bed
     knowing he'll soon appear
Frightened and trapped
     living a torturous nightmare.
Body is shaking
     trembling within
preparing for
     the terrible acts of sin.
Left all alone
     with no one in sight
The abused child cries silently
     all through the night.

How does one heal
     from such a horrible crime?
The scars, the damage
     lasts a lifetime.
Emotionally I struggle
     to make it through
Not knowing why
     I feel and act the way I do.
The tragedy is over
     but the turmoil is still there
I wonder, if my outbursts
     is a way to see if anyone cares.
Please! God help me
     I cry out
with so much anguish
     fear and doubt.
