Crayons left on the floor - no interest
in fun or play-
I sit here all alone - my toys all
put away.
Mommy, I can't cope anymore -
I can still feel his hands-
I can still see his eyes Mommy -
no one understands.
I've hidden away deep in my heart
who no one can find me-
I've hidden in the shadows Mommy,
where you can't see.
He took away my childhood - he
took away my life-
He took away my innocence with
a gun and a knife.
I can't handle it Mommy...I still
see his face-
I still see where he laid me down-
Oh God, I hate that place.
I just can't cope no more - Mommy
please forgive me.
I can never ever go back to the child
I used to be.
Give my toy's to Susie - She don't
have many of her own-
Mommy, remember you have Daddy,
I'm not leaving you alone!
I don't want to feel his hands - I don't
want to feel his breath-
Mommy, his images are smothering me
to the sweet arms of dealth.

Authors Note: My dear AD friends, please forgive me for this poem, and the pic. I felt driven to write this. In the wake of ALL the children who are abused, raped, hurting, crying, it MUST stop. Stop hurting the children. Stop taking away their young innocence because of a need for POWER and CONTROLL! Nothing is worth a child's life. Please...LEAVE OUR CHILDREN ALONE! PLEASE!

Linda, Very powerful poem, reminds me of the song, by my favorite singer; Pat Benatar, Hell Is For Children. Nice write all around and makes an important point. I was verbally abused and beat on most of my childhood, and a few of my poems deal with that issue. I only wrote 50, but see am behind on your total. Keep in touch.

Powerful write--it needs to be loud and clear just like this...

You are always right on these issues hon. You are able to express what the majority of people feel about this. We all want it to stop. The problem in many cases is that the perpetrator offen has no prior record of this type offense. Society is at a loss as how to deal with a problem in advance, when many of the people committing the crime have no prior record. They do try every way they can to catch the recidivist offender. What do they do about those who commit this as their first crime. How do you deal with this ... when you are not adequately dealing with the known pedophiles? It is a perplexing question for those who try to correct these problems on a day to day basis. Maybe one thing that could help would be increased public alert and awareness of others actions in public areas. And increase scrutiny and awareness of our surroundings. Especially with children around these areas. Also some type of national identity means or an alaarm that would let a parent know when a child has strayed from their site. But I really have no effective solutions. Bill
