    BUT IT HURTS, UNCLE MARSHALL, YOUR FINGERS ARE HURTING ME

    UNCLE MARSHALL STOP,
    I WANNA GET UP, I WANT MY MOMMA

    GAL,

    YOU DON'T WANT ME TO HAVE TO TELL YOUR MOMMA, YOU’VE BEEN A BAD GIRL, MAKING ALL THAT NOISE AND CRYING FOR NO REASON, DO YOU?

    NO UNCLE MARSHALL, I DON'T WANT TO GET IN TROUBLE

    THAN YOU BETTER STOP THAT CRYING AND DO WHAT I SAY
    I'LL BE DONE IN A FEW MINUTE


    IN THAT SPLIT SECOND, HE STARTER BREATHING, FASTER AND FASTER ON THE BACK OF MY NECK
    THE SMELL OF HIS ACOHOLIC BREATH, THE SMELL OF AN UNDERAGE CHILD FORCE TO HAVE SEX

    HIS FINGERS CIRCLING, PUSHING IN AND OUT
    AT 10 YEARS OLD WHAT, AM I TO THINK ABOUT

    NO ONES AT HOME TO HERE MY CRY
    MY UNCLES HURTING ME AND I DON'T KNOW WHY

    TEARS OF PAIN STREAMING DOWN MY FACE
    BUT HIS HANDS WONT MOVE FROM MY PRIVATE SPACE

    MOMMA, MOMMA, PLEASE HURRY UP HOME
    CAUSE UNCLE MARSHALL DRUNK AND WON'T LEAVE ME ALONE

    HE'S MAKING ME PLAY A GAME, I DON'T WANT TO PLAY
    HE'S MAKING ME GET UP, NOW HE'S MAKING ME LAY

    DOWN ON THE FLOOR, THEN HE LAYS ON TOP OF ME
    PULLING UP MY DRESS, PUSHING HIS THING IN ME, MAKING ME BLEED

    HIS THING IS HURTING ME, CAUSE HE'S KEEPS PUSHING IN AND PULLING OUT
    I'M ONLY 10 YEARS OLD, WHAT, AM, I TO THINK ABOUT

    HE MAKING ME LAY ON TOP OF HIM, NOW HE'S WANTING ME TO MOVE AROUND
    HE'S PUSHING MY BODY UP, NOW HE PUSHING IT DOWN

    MOMMA I DON'T KNOW WHAT HE WANT ME TO DO
    HE'S MAKING WEIRD NOISES, AND HE CALLING FOR YOU

    MOM I'M TRYING TO BE BRAVE, I'M TRYING NOT TO CRY
    BUT HE REALLY HURTING ME, AND I DON’T KNOW WHY

    HE PROMISE THAT IT WOULDN'T HURT ANYMORE IF I JUST PRETEND
    TO BE GROWN UP, HE TOLLD ME TO STOP CRYING AND JUST GIVE IN

    MOMMA HE STOP MOVING AND I THINK HE'S THROUGH,
    BUT HE KEEP SAYING, I REMIND HIM OF YOU,

    MOMMA, I DON'T KNOW WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT
    PLEASE HURRY UP HOME, SO YOU CAN PUT HIM OUT

    HERE LITTLE GAL, I ALMOST FORGOT TO GIVE YOU YOUR QUARTER
    GO BUY YOURSELF SOMETHING SWEET, YOU DESERVE IT, MY PRECIOUS DAUGHTER
    IT’S TIME FOR YOUR MOMMA TO COME HOME, SO HURRY AND CLEAN YOURSELF UP
    I DON’T WANT HER TO SEE YOU, CRYING, SHUT UP GAL, I’VE HAD ABOUT ENOUGH
    I’M GOING DOWNSTAIRS NOW, WHERE I BELONG
    HURRY UP CHILD, I DON’T WANT HER TO THINK SOMETHING WRONG

    OH,
    PROMISE ME MOMMA,
    WHEN YOU GET HOME, YOU WON'T GET ANGRY, BECAUSE I GOT BLOOD ON YOUR DRESS
    MOMMA,
    I'M SORRY,
    I TRIED TO FIX MY HAIR, THOUGH IT’S STILL A MESS, PLEASE DON'T GET UPSET

    I TRIED TO FIX MYSELF UP SO YOU WOULDN'T BE SO MAD
    I DIDN'T WANT YOU TO THINK BAD OF ME, CAUSE YOU ALWAYS SEEM SO SAD

    MOMMA,
    I REALLY TRIED TO GET THE STAIN OUT, BUT IT DRIED UP BROWN LIKE YOUR OLD ONES DID
    THEY LOOKED LIKE THE SAME STAINS YOU GOT ON THE DRESS, WHEN YOU WERE A KID

    I PROMISE YOU, I WILL NEVER WEAR THIS DRESS AGAIN, I WON’T EVEN WEAR A SKIRT
    I DON'T WANNA EVER GROW UP, I WANT TO JUMP ROPE AND PLAY, BECAUSE BEING A GROWN UP REALLY HURTS

    I TRIED TO SCREAM AS LOUD AS I COULD, BUT ALL I COULD DO WAS CRY
    UNCLE MARSHALL REALLY HURT ME AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY

    MOMMA I'M SORRY
    BUT I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS SUPPOSE TO DO
    HE KEPT MAKING WEIRD NOISE AND CALLING FOR YOU

    MOMMA,
    WHY DO I, IN THAT DRESS, REMINDS HIM OF YOU?
    DID HE MAKE YOU DO THOSE BAD THINGS TOO,

    IS THAT WHY YOU'RE ALWAYS SO SAD AND SO BLUE?
    DID UNCLE MARSHALL GIVE YOU A QUARTER T00

    Whoa....that was heavy. You get out what you need to, I appreciate the art form and think it is good to speak out on serious issues like this that are very taboo to speak on in our community. Few people may respond to this but I garuntee they will have the words burned into their memory after one read. Good piece.

    Beyond heinous, this stripping of innocence, but the way you posed this, was masterfully done. Such a poet you are.

    My sister truly my heart goes out to you... :heart:
    This was painful for me to read... :cry:
    Yet it was written so well that I could not help but continue...
    I sincerely hope this purging process helped some...
    God bless you for having the strength to share...
