Poem About Being Raped By Father

This is a story of what happened to me. Ever since I started writing about it, things have gotten a lot easier and are much more clear to see. Still, because of this, I have been forever changed.

Forever Changed

Published: April 2009

I heard the footsteps coming and I knew this would be another long night
And something inside me screamed this time it really isn't right
The words he was saying were ruthless and cruel
And each time he hit me I sat there and obeyed each and every rule
I sat there blank faced and scared knowing that I couldn't cry
For I knew what would happen if he saw the tears in my eyes

Each and every swing felt worse and worse
And then all I wanted was to be dead in a hearse
He got real close and whispered, "Bitch, I wish you weren't alive"
And all I was thinking was you're right, I wish I wouldn't survive
He threw against the wall then proceeded to pin me to the ground
He hit me again, covered my mouth, not letting me make a sound

I started to struggle and tried to release myself of his forceful grip
Then the next thing I heard was a loud, horrifying rip
His hands were cold and I cringed at first touch
I don't understand how a father could hate his daughter so much
I froze and I couldn't believe that this was really going on
I just kept looking at the clock wanting him to be gone

I tried so badly not to think of the sharp pain
And this wasn't part of his usual game
I closed my eyes wishing the time would just pass by
And that next time I opened them I would be up in the sky
He pushed harder and harder and excruciating pain was all I felt
The next thing I heard was the unbuckling of his belt

Something happened inside of me that I can not explain
I got this surge of energy and said, "F you and your reign"
Somehow, someway I got out just in time
But what he had already done will never get out of my mind
From then on my life has been forever changed
It was like all I knew had been rearranged
I hate him with everything I have in me and so much more
And one day I want to end this war

Between the ages of six to ten I was raped by a babysitter that is my grandpa's brother. I was left there while my mom went out drinking. I thought I could trust him, but I still have the scars and the memories that I will never forget.

You are very brave to write about what happened to you. It's been six years for me and I have never told a soul until now. I was raped at age 11 and you have really helped me with this poem. maybe one day I can tell my bestfriend and hope she doesn't see me any different.

You are very brave for expressing yourself. Please, know you are not what happened to you. You are a beautiful person with pain in her heart. And, you can have a great life. You can be, do and have anything you want. Somehow, you'll have to accept what happened to you and put it behind you. It's not easy, I know, but you your heart will be free of anger, hate and pain once you accept what you can't change. I wish you success and hope you find happiness in you heart. Life is meant to be enjoyed. As long as you are alive, there's time to enjoy. Much Love to you.

I so wish to hug you write now dear author, as we share the same pain.. only it was my maternal uncle who raped me for 2 years. It brought my tears. It reminded me all the terrible times, the horror. I wonder if we can ever come out of that trauma

Your poem was really well written. I understand some of the things you wrote in your poem. I tried to resist against his grip and the words he said were so terrible. I started to cry and he ordered me not to. I know the pain you are feeling inside. Thank you for sharing this with us it helps me not feel alone.

I'm doing a project for Health and I found this very emotional. I thought that the rapist was a stranger until you got to the part when you said you couldn't understand how a father could hate his own daughter. This is very inspiring.

You are a very strong person I can only imagine what you went through in the rest of your life I too an a victim. I read this poem every day at school because I'm in ISS for yelling at people or fighting. People joke about rape and abuse but they never know who has been through it.

It's so scary to think how young these kids can be that get raped. I was raped 3 different times. My first time was when I was 9 by my cousin on my dads side, second time was 14 by my uncle my moms brother, third time was by my brother's 18 year old friend who slept over on his birthday. The first time I was raped I didn't tell my parents till I was 13, then the next year I was raped again. He went to jail and got kicked out of Florida for it but now is living with my grandmother even though she lives 4 blocks away from me? Sometimes I'm scared that I will run into him and I wouldn't know what to do?! But I just try and forget about it but sometimes its hard to because people in my school like to joke about the word rape and they don't stop and think about how it could affect others around them. So I also write poems about them or talk to my boyfriend and vent to out loud and scream in a pillow and scream "WHY ME!?"

I feel you a whole lot! this happened to me 3 years ago when I got raped by my best friend who I thought I could trust. I still feel like if it was just yesterday, this devastating feeling will never change. It made a big change of the way I feel about guys, sometimes I feel very insecure. I see his images around. I know revenge is the only way to ease the pain but I'm being strong and letting him realize that I'm not as cruel as him and just letting God deal with his sin. Instead I pray for him and I try to forgive but it's hard to forgive a person like this. So, I write letters to him but I keep them to myself, also poems about this tragic day.

Very well written!!! I love how you just put a lot of emotion into the poem. This poem does not have to be for someone who went through rape but, it can be for anybody who's going through any kind of abuse or struggle. I know that it's not an easy thing to write a poem and display it for lots of people to see. As that said, I commend you. Well done!

Same thing happened to me long time ago, it all started when I was just 7 years old and lasted for 6 years. My father died when I was just 1 year old and this man was the father I thought I had for he was living with my mother. He raped me for 6 years. I wonder if all this would happen if my real dad was here. I feel your pain. Nicely written. I just wish we can write about something other than this.

I read this and stopped dead in my tracks. The exact same thing happened to me, except it was a 'friend'.. I know that probably doesn't help you at all, but I know what you've been through. The beating and force is so much to take on, you really do wish you wouldn't survive it. I do not know if he walks a free man. But if he isn't in jail I know how you feel, first hand. I feel like I'm always watching my back, and seeing his shadow in the dark. As to your writing, it is simply beautiful. It takes on your story, yet at the same time showing how you feel.

Wow. It sucks that you had to go through that! This was really well written! I love how you extended on your thoughts, rather than what was physically happening! Good job! and you're an extraordinary person for posting this. I bet it helps many people that have been raped and taken advantage of!

I am truly sorry, keep going and try live on, your stronger then any man who could do that. Promise.
