You were brutal...You stole my childhood...In your moments of insanity..


You were brutal

In your moments of insanity

You stole my childhood

Locked me in a closet

I would cry

Till my prison

Became my world

Inside of the closet

I found a skeleton of a child

My sister

You told me she was sent away

I cried and cried

I held her in my arms

She was the only one who would listen

Your insanity grew worse

The days inside of my world grew longer

I prayed and prayed

Singing lullabies to sister

God took the darkness

He created a valley

A field

Clouds with a ray of light

In the darkness

We were together

A bold, powerful, gut-wrenching write on the savagery of parental abuse.

As you know, dear Debra, there is healing power in bringing the secret to light and in the shared understanding of others.

Life is a journey of experience that prepares us for God's greater work ahead. Survival is the promise of angelhood.

Bless you, Debra. Your future is to live in the heart of God.

This is a powerful work.
Described as only one who "knows" would be able to relate. The "thieves" that steal from us as children will one day find that GRACE is not to be found in any lifetime. I appreciated that you struck the darkness with the light. Much appreciated.
With my best regards,

Reviewed by Felix Perry
The compassion and frustration that normal parents feel for children who are put through any kind of abuse, physical, emotional, physcological or sexual is wrapped in this write. It speaks out for the ones who cannot speak out for themselves. Well done Deb.

No one should be allowed to steal away someone's childhood and yet it happens far too often. Your poem is gut-wrenching and puts the reader right there. Excellent write, love Holly
