    You wonder why I act the way I do?
    All you have to do is think back...
    Think back to all those times I had to go get you from the hospital.
    What was I supposed to do, I was only 12!
    12 yrs old acting like I was 25. Had no other choice.
    Couldn't have a normal childhood, everything was about you. What about me?
    I had no one to depend on. Not even my "so called" family.
    I became cold and unemotional. I decided that's the only way to protect me.
    You call me all kinds of names, none in praise.
    You tell me I'm rude, have a bad attitude, and that I need to improve.
    Well, I wonder why?
    You did this to me, you made me the way I am.
    You brush me off like its nothing.
    One day I realized I am important, I do matter. This happened to me for a reason.
    No way in hell you were going to be the creator of my demise.
    But yet, I still cry.
    Having the same nightmare for years.
    You robbed me!
    You robbed me of...
    My childhood.
    My sanity.
    Y O U
    Y O U
    Y O U
    In doing you,
    You f**ked me up for life!

    Thanks for the comments poetrymama & $Rich$! The hardest lesson i had to learn was that this was not my fault and no matter what i do, i cant change it.

    indeed that's the clear path to healing from it all is knowing it was nothing
    you could have done to change it yet you was able to move through it and
    beyond it to talk about it which release the inner anger and mental trapment

    FREE YA SELF......i truely understand and feel u

    Children often blame themselves for pain that is far beyond them. No we can't change the past, but we can do much to change our present. Not everyone can write so eloquently regrading such a painful subject. Keep rising up poet.
