    I felt all alone and heavy in heart.
    My life had been shattered by a tight-fisted hand.
    Who could I turn to; who'd understand?

  2. 22. I Never Asked You To Be My Dad

    As I've grown older I've come to realize that alcoholism is a disease. However, the fact that alcoholism is a disease does nothing to help all the young children who are abused on a daily basis by alcoholic parents. Let's pray they get the help they desperately need.

    I never asked you to be my Dad,
    To slap me around and treat me so bad.
    I never asked you to drink alcohol,
    I never asked for anything at all.

  7. 27. Love Or Obsession

    I wrote this poem a little while ago when I was in a weird place mentally. I've struggled with handling my emotions and self blame for a long time. My stepdad sexual abused me from the age of 6 until recently, I'm 27. He has been relentless and refuses to let me go, it was obsession on his part I think. My whole life I've lived in the shadows of what he continued to do to me, never being able to break free as my mother has always stood by him knowing and defending what he was doing. Now I'm free.

  19. 39. Never Give Up Hope

    I wrote a poem a long time ago, describing how I felt there was no escape from sexual abuse. Nine years ago I felt like I was trapped in a world of despair that I couldn't get out of. I had been sexually abused by a family member from the age of 9.

    I wanted anyone in this position to know that even when it seems there is no hope or escape, there is. I never dreamed that one day I would be where I am now, but here I am. Proof that you can survive and things can change. Never give up hope.

  20. 40. Running From The Bear

    I once read that abuse causes panic and fear and your body interprets that degree of fear as if you are running from a bear. Continued abuse means you are constantly running. My heart goes out to all of those suffering from any type of abuse.

    I've spent many years now
    Running from the bear.
    Just when I think you're gone,
    You once again are there.
