You Can't Hurt Me Anymore

I'm no longer a little girl,
Believing everything said to me,
I refuse to be maniupulated,
By hurtful words,
And hidden scars,
You slowly disected.
I'm not Daddy's little girl,
That title is reserved,
For those who take the time,
To show they care.
I refuse to pretend,
Everything waas always okay,
But I won't sit around,
Mourning over the things you striped from me,
The moment you began touching me,
Fondling me like some kind of sex symbol,
I was your only daughter,
And you hurt me,
But you can't hurt me anymore.
Michelle Renee Kidwell
I want those who have been abused whether, physically, sexually, verbally, emotionally or in anyway to know they are not alone! I write these even though it is painful for me to write such personal poetry to get that message out. I spent to long pretending everything was okay, when in fact abuse of any kind is never okay.

|Those of us who have been abused in such a manner as you fully understand the turmoil. I know that I understand. From the standpoint of being a victim of abuse from a neighbor for many years, I blocked out the images for more than twenty years. When it hit, it hit fast and hard and has taken me a long time to forgive myself for forgetting.
You are a true shining star Michelle. One that will light the pathway for many.
Love, Hugs and Laughter to you always, Shirley

|No abuse is never ok and I know what you must have went through. The people who do this are very sick. They can only relate to children and the innocence they see in the child. They are misfits in the adult world and walk around with dark secrets. You are good to clear the air, because it will help you more than anyone else. Happy New Year
