Drained Of Innocence - Poem by Andi Jakobs
Innocence swims in the eyes of a child,
But that innocence was taken by a man so wild.
He took her, and dragged her to his room.
It was dark, and scary like an early tomb.
He did things to her, to a mere little girl.
He took everything from her, he took her world.
The way she sees it, the way it affects her.
It was the one night, she never expected to occur.
He beat her, and took all her innocence away.
The image of life, it became so array.
She cries herself to sleep now every night.
Scared to death that he will come back at twilight.
Every boy, every man she sees,
She remembers that night he used her to please.
Stripped of everything she ever had; hopes and dreams.
They were shattered by his roughness it seems.
She never told anyone of what plague struck her;
Growing pain in the horrid thought of forever.
Forever stuck with the thoughts of him,
Trust in the future everyday grew dim.
Every person scared her, scared her to death
That they would take away all she had left.
She is but nine years old, only a young child.
But everything was taken from her, by a man so wild.
