Abuse Poem by Teens

Father Daughter Abuse Poem

This is a poem I wrote about the three years I was molested and nearly raped. I was scared, so scared. I just want to tell anyone out there who needs support that there are other people like you out there, and they are willing to help you. I hope this poem reaches out to people, and helps them deal with their life. because even though adults may say we have it easy, we don't. A lot of times, our life is harder than theirs.

The First Time


Published by Family Friend Poems November 2013 with permission of the Author.

The first time he touched me
I was timid and wanted to run to my mother
But he told me this was normal
And there was no use in being afraid
My life was already filled with so much pain
I had no experience, so who was I to object?
His hands were rough and shaking with his excitement
I shivered in fear
How was I to react?
He told me no one wanted a virgin
That he was preparing me for the man who would make me his
I didn't know anyone better
When hands gripped my breasts, I held the screams at bay
It didn't feel normal
But I was only ten
How could I know the difference?
When fingers became explorative,
And found the most womanly part of me
I cried silent tears
When rough hands forced my thighs apart
I wanted to scream in pain
When I went home
I stayed in the shower for hours
Scrubbing till my skin was raw and bleeding
I always felt dirty
I was dirty
I had betrayed my family
But most of all, I had betrayed myself
I never truly lost my virginity
But I lost the innocence
That I had once carried about with joy
When will I have my justice?
When will he suffer
For the time that he made me suffer?

Hey I just wanted to say to all you people out there who have this problem, I had the same thing going on and I ended up sending him to jail on august 6 2016.
My step dad had molested me for 6 years. I was 14 when the sex started and I was 12 when the touching started. I thought he loved me and wanted to be with me forever and have kids with me but turns out he did not.
I have a beautiful baby boy now, his dad is my stepdad and I know that because I have never had sex with anyone else. My step dad went to jail for it and he will be there for a long, long time.

I was molested by my favorite uncle when I was just 8, my mother asked about him and I just shook my head. I didn't know anything.. didn't understand what he was doing. I was I guess you could say half-raped , he almost got in me ... I'm 15 now so it still bothers me but not so much. Sorry that happened to you. :(

Hey Hannah, I'm sorry this happened to you. My mom did the same thing to me. I never told anyone. I was adopted at the age of 4 and never have I been more scared than during that time. I'm sorry people go through that. People these days are so mean and abusive.

I was raped by my uncle when I was 11, I kept that to my self until I was 44. My father passed away a year after he found out. It's taken me till now to find the strength to forgive him. He destroyed my life then, in the summer of 74, then again when my father found out, I am in counseling but when my justice comes it will be by God's hands and not mine. ...
