If you are abused...adult or child..reach out to someone...tell the secret. The 'he' in this poem is generic, I don't for a moment believe abuse is strictly a male sin.

I can hardly bear the weight
Secrecy
Sibilant
Sinister
My shoulders are bent
My heart heavy
Words too much to hold
Knowledge
Wrong, so very wrong
And secrecy
Rules my life
They say reach out
Tell someone
But secrecy
Itís a prison in itself
And heÖ
Holds the key

An outstanding piece Sue
One must speak out,
I know, what you're thinking, "its easey to say"
If you are not living it,
I seen abused, some need not say anything
Its written within their eyes
peace be with you

Love & Peace
William

This is quite familiar Sue!
I can say- I've been there and done that!
Did you read my #45 or so down, of my Oldie but goodie writings, called "My MOm's Husband" and about #35 or so down, (if you have time) "The Name DAD Should be Love" and a few close to #15 I think... Wasn't sure If I shared them with you yet, BEWARE! Blunt and Honest! and 1 is a long, a kinda' mission-statement...
This poem you wrote!
Spoke loud and clear!
Catch them all! and in time!
Hog tie em' and not blindfolded!
Etc...

i detest abuse of every kind--physical or mental. it's torture and sadistic. good job. thanks for sharing.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 4/16/2007
Stark and sad write and as so often is the case true, abused are just as much hurt by their inability to not reach out as they are the abuser. People who even have the sligtest suspicion that someone they know is being abused should do everything possible to let them know we will step forward and stand with them.

Such dark secretes kept undercover, such a shame. Should be out in the sunlight for all the world to learn how horrible being abused is. The scars it leaves go on forever. So terribly sad.

Be safe,
Karen
