The Devastations of The Storm
Note-This is a true story. This did happen to me and I still suffer because of it. Please bear with me. I have to face this demon in my life if I am to go on and have a normal life.



How could you?

Why did you break an innocent little girl?

Leaving behind

This bitter old woman

In her place

Struggling just to face each day


Yet all the while

Slowly, painfully inside



I did no wrong

I understand that better now

Then I did then

Yet still

A normal life of sunshine

That's a concept

I find so very to grasp

While I stand here

Trapped in the aching misery

The downpouring torrant of my shared past


I was just a kid

I looked up to you

I adored

Maybe even just a little bit

Worshipped you

Hiding away

When the clouds brust

And your fury

In thundering blows and taunts

Came flooding down

Nowhere to run

Nowhere to run

So I learned the best way to handle you

Was to blame me

To hate me

For failing to be

The good little girl

I should have been


Now I'm grown up twisted

All wrong and outside

Never part of a normal society

Never once

Been able to believe

I am deserving of even

One good thing

In my life

So I punish myself

Blame myself

Go without for myself

Because I feel

I don't deserve

I'm not worth

And to you mama and daddy

I owe this neverending nightmare

Your abuse made of my life

Thanks alot

Love you but hope you're both burning in Hell

This is terribly sad and heartbreaking and even more so because it is your real life experience.

I feel so much empathy for abused children.
