You took and you took,
until I could give no more.
You corrupted my childhood,
abducting the youth I adored.
I tried to remain focused,
forgiving each and every day.
But your abominations towards me,
left me empty and betrayed.
It’s easy to say I forgive you,
even though a part of me never will.
It’s easy to say I’ve forgotten,
the trauma which you instilled.
But I keep pushing forward,
though the trials seem so tough.
You’ve stripped away my dignity,
making me callously rough.
Years you’ve taken from me,
impossible to ever give them back.
Silently suffering by myself,
for your ruthless brutal attacks.
I’ve gathered all my courage,
I shaved off all my fear.
Now all I see is the beauty,
of the Lord brushing away my tears.
