Crying Poem

Poem About Reminders Of The Past

I was beaten by my alcoholic father as a child and molested by my uncle. No one knows these things except for a few friends and my journal. I'm depressed, and I cut often to get the pain out. I'd hate to hurt my family, so I try my hardest to stay away from suicide, but I think of it daily...that is the story behind my tears.

You're definitely not alone in your suffering. Like you, I was abused by my stepfather and an uncle and have struggled daily to deal with the pain. I was in the third grade when mine started...

Tears, Tears Go Away


Published: July 2013

Tears, tears go away.
Why must you come back almost every day?
You remind me of my pain.
You remind me of my past.
Why can't you go away?
Just let this happiness last.

Tears, tears flowing so fast,
You're telling the story of a child in the past.
She's stuck with the memory of what has just happened,
Praying to God one day she won't be broken.

The bruises, the scars,
The ones that will never heal.
She grew up thinking that's how you need to feel.

This little girl,
Not sure about life,
Cut after cut
Then took her life.

Tears, tears come as she leaves this world
"So young, so happy" for all they know.
Beaten as a child,
Not loved all her life,
Backstabbing friends.

Oh wait that's my life....

That is so sad, and it sucks to say I am the same way. I have been abused all my life and was molested at age 3. I'm here to tell you I am deeply sorry that happened to you and I know how you feel!

A past that never goes away. I was raped by my father, my mother’s step-father, and my mother’s uncle. Past, oh please go away. I was just a thing to pass around from time to time. Now I’m here today asking why I deserve this. I beg myself not to cry. I beg myself not to fall, but I’m just a person broken down. That’s all. I’m not perfect, just a broken heart, soul, mind, and body. This is my past that won’t go away.

I'm so sorry. Please, please stand up and declare yourself a survivor worthy of the world's goodness and grace. They. Did. Not. Win. As. Long. As. You. Can. Still. Stand. With. Dignity. And. Hope. They are less than nothing! Know that and walk away. God's love, when asked for, can heal even this. Even this. Ask! And may God bless you!!

You're definitely not alone in your suffering. Like you, I was abused by my stepfather and an uncle and have struggled daily to deal with the pain. I was in the third grade when mine started with my stepfather and just hitting. I was in highschool when it started with my uncle. Both today deny any wrongdoing but God above and I know the truth. I cannot say I have never cut myself as you are doing, because I have had the full intention at the time of taking my life, but somehow I always managed not to go too far. I've also taken a lot of pills at one time to end the amount of pain I was going through but somehow I am still here.

It helps having people around you that you can talk to no matter who they are... don't be afraid to reach out to someone for you cannot keep this pain inside, trust me, I know how it can be. I'm very sorry you had to go through this and hope you know in your heart that it was never your fault ... you can overcome this, it isn't easy but you can do it.

You are never alone. We are here for you. I used to have a problem with cutting and suicidal thoughts, but then I found a site called storybird. The people there helped me like no one else. Just remember, you are never alone. There is always someone looking out for you, even if you don't think so.

Believe it or not, the exact same thing happened to me. I feel your pain, sweety. You're not alone.

I really hate that this actually happens to people, and all I can say is don't give up, as long as you're still breathing then you still have a reason for living, don't let life get you down, don't let bad things get you down and don't let them control the way you see other things and say good things only happen to others, everybody goes through hard times but different situation, I hope for you a better life..
