Abuse Poem

When I was child I was molested by my papaw and abused by my daddy. I never told anyone. My older sister was molested by my daddy, which was her stepfather. She got the nerve to tell on him and I didn't tell until I was twelve.

I Need It From You

Sometimes I'm confused and don't know what to do,
I need help and I need it from you.
My life is full of "ups" and "downs",
and I need someone to lift my "frowns".

So much hurt and so much pain,
sometimes I feel like I'm going insane.
All the abuse and all the molestation,
are you starting to understand all the aggravation?

Wanting to be loved and just feel like I'm needed,
am I starting to sound conceited?
My mind is always pacing thinking of childhood days and nights,
all of it's fears and all of it's frights.

I just want the memories to disappear,
if I could I probably wouldn't be drinking this beer.
Oh God please help me, I don't know what to do,
I need help and I need it from you!

I can relate to this because I have been in the same scenario with my dad...and so it's good to know that we are many in this. But the truth is, somehow, you have to talk about it. You may never forget what happened but trust me, once you talk about it to trusted person, chances are your burden is lighter. A problem shared is a problem half solved. So I totally give you credit for talking about it here.

Reading this poem brought tears to my eyes because I too was molested by my stepdad what hurts is that no one believed me an my mother went on and married the man, till this day I'm confronted all the time with these hurt feelings . They say time heals all wounds, its being 10 years an I'm still waiting for time to heal my wounds :(
