Rape

I was the child
who got raped
I was the child
that held it all in
I was the child
giving a dirty slate
I was the child
given this sin
I am the child
who told a friend
I am the child
my pain now ends
I am the child
with a fresh start
I am the child
forgiveness in my heart
I am the child
my Love will show
I am the child
who has let this go.

    Blessed you who mercy show, forgiveness you invest.
    At harvest reap you mercy, and know that you've been blessed.
    God bless you. DGP

    I know how you feel, I got raped at the age of 7. But for you to write a poem about it I respect you so much more.

    You have recieved this dirty slate...
    No one should deserve this awful fate.
    This happening should not have happened...
    Hopefully this monster will in hell, be trappened.
    Rape is an awful control over another human beeing...
    Aptly-for this low life scum-from God and the Devil-There will be no fleeing freeing.
    The fires of Hell will burn his soul...
    This is God's eternally written automatically targeted goal.
    For God has promised a place in Heaven for a Godly faith...
    That evil person will be placed in Hell, that being this no good, evil'ed monstering
    uncontrolled, commitng wraith.
    I have only loathing for a woman beater, rapist, killer, child abuser, child negleganced parent, child molester(child killer) . Sorry to be so harsh and unfogiving.
    It is only God's place to forgive-not mine.There should be no forgiving but only Hell for such animals of society. God bless you and best wishes-Michael Jeffrey Gale.

    To forgive can be one of the hardest yet most rewarding things that one can do,
    Peace to you and your closest,
    Love Duncan

    Thanks for your comment on my poem Thanks Mom, and I glad to here that you have dealt with your own abuse. And I can here your pain yet forgiveness through this poem. When I say forgiveness I don't mean your forgiveness toward your rapist, but your forgivenss of no longer blaming yourself. Much peace to you.
