Abuse is all I've known. Poem by Amy Kerswell


Its the only thing I have ever known.
Abuse rape and sexual abuse.
I've met all the bastards along the way.
None of them any good.
Only the ones who have hurt me.

And I wonder only one thing.
Is there any one good out there?
Or was it just me?

People say it werent my fualt
I dont agree it must have been

    very well written, but all guys are not bad, just as all women are not bad, you will find the right guy some day, just don't give up. (Report) Reply

    You don't need the platitudes about how things are not your fault. I have seen your poems and know that you do need to let it out though, and you do so here, and good on you. I wish you well; and it will be. I promise you. t x (Report) Reply
