A Child Inside - Poem by Sharron Stephenson

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,
born.

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

    All of us can love and be loved, even someone like me, a petite little girl trapped inside a 500 pound body! Never give up.
    I saw your name on a comment you left on a poem by Carl Roussell, and was drawn to it because I had a friend named Sharon years ago.
    Please read my latest poem, " Skinny-Dipping" . Thanks.

    Shedding the layers of past hurts is a very painful process, never the less is the only way
    to the healing freedom we all seek. Good luck in your spiritual growth and liberation. TFS

    for me to love someone and,
    can someone love me....very powerful and emotional in words and expressions........ like this poem very much. congratulations..... but you are sure to overcome this bad feeling now........... share it with others. do not keep the pain in yourself...........Our families, customs, regulations, our own thinking and upbringing .. all play a big role in us. See everything withe the eye of your soul. make the experience a divine one.... find peace..... in meditation and prayer........ thank you dear poetess.

    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.

    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.
