Poem On Moving Forward After Rape

This goes into my experience with rape as a 14 yrs old. I've had a lot go on since then and due to this experience I've become a better person today. Some may not agree but this is important for girls going through what I went through and hope it makes some peace in your heart

Hurt, Pain, And Anger


Published by Family Friend Poems November 2008 with permission of the author.

I hurt because of you.
The  pain I felt when you hurt me.
The anger that followed what you did.

I could never understand why you did these things to me...
I was 14,
Just beginning life..

And you took it from me.
How is this fair to me??

I hurt every day because you raped me.
The pain of knowing you killed the little girl I was
and the woman I was meant to grow up and be.
The anger will never leave me now that it's instilled into my everyday life.

I may never be the same because of you.
What sort of sick attraction could one grown man have for a 14 year old little girl.

I can never forget what you've done to me
and to think I could never forgive you for what you've done to me
and put me and my family through.

But that has changed for me...
I forgive you for what you've done.
You couldn't help that you were sick in the head.
But you'll get what you deserve in the end.
I can't control what happens to you when you pass on but I can promise you..

The Pain
The Hurt
The Anger

Will all leave me one day..
When I'm at peace with myself and the decisions I've made along this time.

I'm going to grow up and mature and be the best of what I can be.
I don't regret what you've done to me...
I want to thank you.
From everything that has happened,
I can now help other young girls who are going through what I went through.

I'm taking this experience and using it to my advantage.
If it wasn't for what you did to me 3 years ago...
I wouldn't be the hard-working, determined leader I am today.

So thank you for showing me..
I'm going to make it...
Since you won't.

I was 14, he was 26 the first night he touched me, I still remember the way he smiled, the way he whispered in my ear about how he liked it. I was molested for 4 months. I went through soo many sleepless night because my molester lived with us. I felt so alone and hurt. I was constantly scared about when he would come into my room and do something. Then one night he came into my room and raped me, it lasted for about 1 hour and 30 mins. The only way I made through it was imagining that I was somewhere else. Every since then I constantly check over my shoulder to see if he's there. He took something so innocent from me, like it was a game. It's been 2 months since I told my parents now he's getting charged with severe child molestation. Even though what he did was wrong I forgive him, cause if I don't let this go it will only remind me of what he did. I'm sooo sorry that you guys have went through this, I wish no one would but the world is cruel and selfish. The only thing that helped me was telling someone. You should never keep this in, I promise you that telling someone will help. I'm 15 now and he still haunts my memories.

I was 4 when I was raped and abused by my uncle. I told my dad he didn't believe me. I told my mom she finally believed me and called the cops. I'm 15 now and still have flashbacks and I can't sleep at night. I cry all night I have to go to therapy and do anger management. I have post traumatic stress disorder and I don't trust no man no more. I can't stay in a relationship what so ever and I really hate it I just don't trust no one...

I've been molested by my step dad when I was 9, all the way till I was 15. When I was 9 years old, my mom worked nights and sometimes I would fall asleep in her room and wake to my step dad either on top of me (rubbing against me) or feeling all on my body. I was afraid to move or get up and so I would just pretend that I was still asleep. He would also sneak into my room at night while everyone was asleep. I hoped that one of my brothers or sisters would have came in on him molesting me, but no one came. I'm 16 about to be 17 in a few months and I never told a soul about what he did to me, and I don't believe I can. I don't know why. He's still with my mom and they been together for 10 almost 11 years. He still stay with us, and him and my mom had 2 kids together. I get sick to my stomach every day I see his face.

That was a really powerful poem and it made me realize that even though something bad happens it always turns out being better in the end. No ones perfect I get that but even though he was sick it didn't give him that right to hurt someone so small , its nice to forgive but never forget because you never no what's around the corner .. be strong and don't let anyone make you in to something you're not

Not sure if you have heard of the book called "The Courage To Heal" but it can help you heal and be able to get over it. It is helping me today!

You know I don't know how you can forgive someone that has rapped you. I have been both raped and molested. I was molested from the age of 6 to 11 by 2 different people, molested again when I was 12 by a different person, raped when I was 12 by a different guy and molested again this year and I tell you that I could never forget or forgive what they have done to me. Even though they did make me the person I am today, I am a much stronger person, but what they did was wrong and they hardly got in trouble for it at all. There are so many sick people out there. And me being a 15 year old girl it is the hardest thing to have to go through. I can't even explain it, its just horrible. I will NEVER forgive or forget it. Some people are just sick. They don't even deserve to be forgiven for what they have done or how many life's they have ruined. I hate all 5 of the people that have done it to me and the deserve to sit and rot...

I was molested at 11 and raped at 27. I am now 32. I try so hard to forgive but I just can't. I admire this young girls strength and will power.

My girl friend was raped when she was 12 and molested when she was 6. So from my experiences with how she acts, I just kind of write pomes for her and this one is really nice, but how can you forgive someone who has done something like that? I think they should be cursed and dammed to hell for what they have done and you are forgiving them! They don't deserve to be forgiven for the pain they cause.
