Poetic Testimony

I went thru life so ashamed
I went thru life going insane
I hope my child can break the chain
If not I have but myself to blame

He said kissing and touching was innocent amongst friends
He didnt say when kissing and touching was suppose to end
He didnt even limit the kissing and touching to just men
Maybe this is something that should have never began

She said she loved me, she said she cared
She even showed it sometimes, but this was rare
She didnt cry, her heart didnt even tear
When she found out that my innocence was no longer there

I tried everything to get away
I tried to run, but only lasted a few days
I tried a gun, but it didnt spray
now the only thing I can think to do... is pray

    There is so much sadness in this poem, Monica, and the exploitation of innocense is touched upon with tenderness. I'm glad that gun "didn't spray." Lost love can really send us tumbling downward, but I'm glad you are finding some comfort in prayer. Love and blessings, Carolyn
