The Weak

Before reading please understand 
that I would not write about anything 
that I do not know about or 
understand. May you try to 
understand that some take longer 
others and as long as they get 
closure that's all that matters... 
Hopefully they do.

Age Six

I do but I don't know this game,
See we live in a house and I have my 
little tea set so I guess its okay,
You're older so I guess I have to 
obey,
I don't really see what's wrong with 
playing this way,
Mommy and daddy play this way 
everyday,
My nervousness is gone and like 
they do every day, can we play?

Age 12

Oh my I can't believe I hit puberty 
wow,
And I'm older and its wrong and its 
time to stop the game now,
My daddy said he is so proud,
I'm truly is his princess but where's 
my crown,
There were so many playing that are 
disappointed and now I feel guilty 
somehow.

Age 13

Mom, dad please help me please,
I was sleeping when I felt someone 
touching me,
Their hand were deep down in my 
jeans,
Mom why aren't you doing anything,
Dad they "got help" where's my 
counseling,
I know what happened to them but 
out of all people why did it happen to 
me,
I can't believe it, I truly can't believe,
And it was happening for 2 weeks?

Age 14 

My grades are dropping, all I want to 
do is sleep man,
Stay out and smoke with my friends,
No I don't need a damn guiding hand,
The last hand I had was in my pants,
My exciting lover is pulling at my waist 
band,
I guess I gotta prove in this 
relationship where I stand. 

Age 17

I can drink, pop and smoke like 
crazy,
Some want me to stop, ahahaha 
maybe,
I'm a weird ***** I'm not a classy 
lady,
Maybe that was wrong to say and I 
should stop all for my baby.

Age 18 

I feel so empty on the inside,
I daze off so much and I feel numb 
most of the time,
And I'm angry and mad and lost in 
my mind,
I can't pray no matter how hard I try,
No matter how many pills I still 
won't die,
I'm careless and I believe love is all a 
lie,
If my child can't cheer me up then 
why try why?

I'm trying to overcome and do better 
but the more I MENTALLY think 
about the positive the more opposite 
I ACT.
