    I dropped out of school at a very early age,
    Now I regret it I’m so full of rage.
    I am trying to make it on my own but it’s not easy because I’m all-alone.

    My parents died when I was ten,
    I stayed with my uncle he committed such sins.

    He liked me a lot sometimes too well,
    I should know because parts of my body began to swell.
    My uncle told me I should never tell and if I did I would go to jail.

    He said it was all my fault and that I shouldn’t be so bad,
    I don’t know what I did to be treated this way but it made me feel sad.
    As I got older he began to stop and I began to realize it wasn’t my fault.

    When I was eighteen my uncle died too,
    I was kind of happy because now the abuse was finally through.


    I have been trying to make it every since then,
    Wanting the pain and sores to mend.
    But it’s not easy when the cuts are so deep,
    I guess the older I get the nightmares will keep.

    So every night I must pray for all of the kids of the world to never have
    To be treated that way.

    Thanks for the love you guys but this piece is not about me. Although the subject is a reality for many. I was molested as a child. So I understand the situation. This was written from a news segment about a abused child back when I was in high school waaaaaaay back when.

    I'm relieved that this isn't specifically about you, but saddened about what you have experienced. This was truly an emotive piece, I believe that there is a special place with the devil for people who commit crimes such as this. Much luv to ya.

    ....Brave poet
    some subjects are so
    heartwrenching...
    it's hard to pick up
    a pen...to find the words
    and even to read them
    but with exposure
    someone else may
    be delivered...
    by your words...
    by your voice
    The protection of a child
    is very near and dear to me...
    Bless you for sharing this...
    and bless these words
    that they may reach the
    places that need to be
    reached...

    Much love to you poet,
    Sage
