    Why do my dreams take me there.
    Sometimes it's to much to bear.
    It's just so hard to conceive.
    How can I make them believe.
    At the tender age of 5 he stole
    my innocence from me.
    'STOLE MY INNOCENCE"
    And things have never been
    the same ever since.

    I'll try to make it out somehow.
    Cause I just can't let them break
    me now.

    So many tears in the night.
    Always in fear or in flight.
    But, I won't hide anymore
    that not what my life is for.
    And if I can just stand one
    more day.
    I know that I'll find my way.

    What does it take to be heard
    is it a shout or a word?

    Listen to voices that never were
    heard.
    Wanting to fly away just like
    a bird.
    Silence won't make the pain go away.
    That's why I am speaking on it today.

    No more fear, no more flight.
    Finding the answers that help me
    through the night. And help me to fight!
    Gave me the healing if not the cure.
    Free from the fear , of that I am sure.

    and it wasn't your fault
    somebody did something stupid
    don't hold YOURSELF hostage
    life goes on
    don't forget but
    move on
    because its your life
    and you have to be happy

    loving your strength poet
    and hear to support you
    and read the weapon of choice and get the inspiration to conquer those feeling that hold you back

    and the person who did you wrong oh? they will get theirs
    if it hasn't already happened

    peace poet
    and love as always

    ain't nothing changed

    Rich, thank you so much it means a lot to me when I see your input.
    So'ja, I love yo mind and yo strength which inspires me daily.
    I feel like I have known you to guys all my life...perhaps in another life we did!
    I do know that my healing took a long time but I am already there or I wouldn't be able to love and open up the way I can now, it has not always been so. For years I kept my poetry to myself some of them so raw I dare not share them with anyone else. But, here is a safe place and no "Judgement", just encouragement and constructive observations!
    And I love you too!
    Blessings on Ya House!
