A Child Inside

i have a burning feeling inside,
like i am been torn apart,
the pain is unbearable,
the flashbacks are the worst,
nightmares are taken the toll on me,
i wish it was all gone there,
are times like now when i wish i was never,

is this due to the feeling i was to blame?
this was all my fault,
he kept saying to me. if i told they would,
not belive me,
and i would be taking away,

could i have dealt? with all the problems,
in a driffrent way,
all this is wrong,

i feel like i what to die right now,

i need help and support,
as this is going to be a long and hard,
road ahead,

could i have stopped this from happening,

i feel like a child trapped in a adult body,
i am so tired all the time,

i wish i could find the on of switch i,
had so i could turn all this of,

is it poss? for me to love someone and,
can someone love me

    Tears, what a painful verse...I could almost hear the cracks of a little heart... Such horrible things as the abuse of children sadly still happens everyday, what can we do to stop them? What is wrong with us? How can a child be abused and nobody reads those signs? Family, community, teachers, somebody must have seen that something is not right with the child. No, it is not the victim's fault, but of the abusers and also the adults close enough to give the child a hug, look into the child's eyes and ask are you all right? We could be fooled by a nod and a mumble but if we really look through the heart's eyes we can see that something is wrong and we should dig around to seek what hurts, what is the pain of dear child?
    Thank you for having the power to open your heart, I hope this poem would give you strenght and answers to also those who wonders the same questions over and over. Keep writing dear poet your pen is full of strongest ink,
    the pain of heart with cracks. May the child find again the flow of love and smiles. (Report) Reply

    Great poem and I can really feel the pain and the emotions. Touching. Now if you can edit the poem it would be an excellent poem to read with a tremendous touch to the reader's heart because some people cannot get past the spelling to comment on the pain and truth of the your heart.

    yes it is possible for you to love and for someone to love you
    let not the darkness of past trials mar your hope
    your belief, your need for happiness
    which is your right, your claim in life
    we all get tired of life
    but even if you have the switch
    and you do turn off, will the pain dissipate
    will it all be better
    sometimes in darkness you just need
    a really bright torch of fire (Report) Reply

    There is a child in all of us, some more wounded that others. It takes courage to put into words the pain within. A very moving poem that could reach the hardest of hearts, and bring healing to the wounded. (Report) Reply

    Tough subject to read, must have been very tough to write. When something happens to us, we're always that age when we think of it. I know that. Very well written, in my opinion. (Report) Reply

    Take some mind travel, look into forward step..Dont let the fire burn your chest sharron
    Maybe he keep saying to you..but dont keep saying to yourself too
    Sometimes we feel like a stone useless and just a waste, but we are not
    You can deal and you feel it if you want it..Keep life with strong hopes
    I also hope we keep be a child, no problem just happpy but this is reality we have to face.We have no choice except be strong and fight's hard but the only choice to win...Love yourself more before you accept someone love, coz once u broken u will never feel lost except you lost yourself...Poignant and emotion shared here, good work_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply
