I'll Never Forget


I never forget what happened
I'll never forget what they did.
They used rape and abuse
To have power over me.

I'll always remember
Will I ever forget.
I long to break free
And take back my life.
The rape and abuse
Has held me back for to long.

One day I will reclaim
What was taken from me

    What is it in the 'step'.. I remember the First Ever night that I was raped. I was raped by my step brother. He had dragged me out of bed in the middle of the night and pulled me into my closet. wrapped a towel around my head. and Went on. I was screaming and i could bearly breathe, I can still remember the smell of his sweet just dripping all over me. He told me that If i were to tell someone he was going to kill my father. I never really spoke to my father but i didn't want anything to happen to him so I let it go on for about 7 years. This occured when I was 6, I was in grade 1. I am now 16 And sometimes I wake up and I can still smell him all over me, I still haven't told my dad, I guess I don't want to hurt him from keeping something from him for that long. When i was 13... My dad took My brothers and I and we ran away and moved into another house because my step mom would abuse us the whole time we were living there. Still hard though. I always wonder why something like this had to happen to me. And why Any sick minded freak would do anything like that. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
