They Took Away My Innocence

They took away my innocence—
A child, but merely two years old.
My soul left with ambivalence;
I hate myself as I grow old.

A child, but merely two years old—
Abandoned, glossed over, abused.
I hate myself as I grow old;
Completely left confused and used.

Abandoned, glossed over, abused—
Why would a person hurt a child?
Completely left confused and used—
Naïf, so trusting, meek, and mild.

Why would a person hurt a child?
My soul left with ambivalence—
Naïf, so trusting, meek, and mild.
They took away my innocence.

They Took Away My Innocence, it's touching and reminds me of my poem; My Song of Painful Plea, and so it's true when I say some pains are like names, and this world have big packages of pain and sorrows. A lovely write, Alvin.

This poem covers a question that I doubt could be answered - It is a tragic thing when a child is hurt especially when the hurt is emotional and caused by an adult - congrats on being featured
