Innocence - Poem by johanna damon

You took everything I had
You broke everything I was
Like I was made of glass
Like I was made of paper
You went and tore me down
But I will rise from the ground
I will rise like a phoenix from the ashes of my pain

All you were was one more person who abandoned me
This time it wasnt just me that will hurt
You took two innocent babies and hurt them too
They will never know you
Only me
When they ask the truth will be told to them
Ill tell them you werent man enough to deal with your responsiblities

My life will go on
It may take years for my heart to heal
But it has already started to heal

From the ashes of my pain will come victory
The years will go by and you'll look and say
'why did i make that mistake? why wasnt i responsible? why did i miss out on my babies? '

And I'll tell you that i tried to make it work you just werent ready.
You'll protest your innocence but by the time you do it'll be too late
They wont want anything to do with the man who abandoned them
Protest all you want
You are not innocent
