And this one too, Tim, very much so <3

This pain inside eats me away,
Little by little every day..
  When shall it ever end.
I try so hard to fit in well,
To move on, and not to dwell,
  Will my mind ever mend.

He groomed me so I wouldn't scream.
A normal life was just a dream,
  I slowly disappeared.
And when he sold me at age nine,
I went, without a single whine:
  'Twas only him I feared.

I met you and that saved my life.
You kept me from the final knife,
  My precious Little One.
And now I save you in a trial,
Against all these men so vile,
  Because of what they've done.

My Little One, once come thy day
We meet again, shan't go away
  As long as we will live
I'll stay alive until we can
I'll stay alive my little man
  For you I will survive.

Beautifully penned, my friend ... and again, the story is so sad, but compelling, and ultimately some victories. We find strength in very unexpected places sometimes - when we are compelled or forced to - but ultimately the spirit survives. My soul aches and cries for what you've been through ... thank you for sharing your pain. Love you, Buddy.

Thank you my friend. This series was extremely hard to write, but I was forced to in a way, from the inside.

To always be there for someone does not necessarily mean standing by their side is the physical sense but to be there to listen, to understand, to care and to help. Nicely done Darren.
