Let's Get Lost

She was a 10 years old
When her life was sold
He hurt her in ways unimaginable
He may have not have been her father
But he was her brothers
He told the 10 year old to get in the bed
Or something would happen to her 1 month brother
The bed was cold
The springs were rusted
Her heart was always filled with love and care
But after that night
She wouldn't dare share
The 10 year old went to school the next day
Without anything to say
Her friends found out
And shunned her out
She told an      
The police were called
She was taken from her mother
Who at that time wouldn't believe her
She stayed at a family members house
A couple days went by
Then she was returned home
The bad guy was found
She still has nightmares to this day
And she has this to say:
"I'm sorry for doing what I knew was wrong
All I wanted was for my brother to be safe."

This is a true story, It's MY story. I hope that all you readers unerstand that I still blame 
myself for what happened that night. I DON'T want your sympathy, I just need friends who 
actually care. Thank You For Reading Let's Get Lost. . . . . .

    A dark and woeful quality seems to surround this, I don't know that I can offer you friendship due to locations, but I will offer a branch so to speak. thats my e-mail and msn if you ever want to talk or even just trade poetry :) You're not alone out here... Thanks, Conor J

    i am proud of you for being able to come to terms with this,and being brave enough to write about it. steve

    The person that did those horrible things is wrong. It is good that you are writing about it. I hope that you have someone to talk about this with. It won't be easy but in time you will heal. You helped keep your brother safe. Try to remember that when you start feeling guilty. When he is old enough to understand what happened he will be grateful to you. Pray for direction and for people you can trust to help you learn to deal with these feelings. How's Justin doing? Keep writing. Love Robin

    Takes a lot of courage to write about something so personal, it's a very deep poem. I'm sure you've touched a lot of lives, and there are a lot of lives left to be touched =). You said in your poem you want friends who care, so looke me up if you ever want someone to talk to :D. Take care!
