Little Girl Lost


I was that little girl
Who was so very lost,
Stuck in an adult world you see
It was me he did

I shouldn't have known these awful things
That were so strange and bad,
So much sadness on my face
But I didn't know how to get mad.

He wanted me to like it
But what was there to like,
It made my stomach turn in knots
I was just a little tyke.

I felt so lost and empty
I kept everything buried inside,
So deep within my memory
My thoughts I had to hide.

You took away my innocence
You took away my soul,
I have to face the nightmares still
My happiness you stole.

My inner self is broken
My mind can't comprehend,
The vulgar ways you touched me
And the message you did send.

So yes I was that little girl
Who was so very lost,
And even in my adult self
My life is what's at cost.

Words many of us can understand that's for sure. I agree with Hopeful, very well written. I think its great that you're in a place with it all that you can write it and put it out there. That can lead to some huge steps towards healing.

A very sad poem and one that reflects clearly the kind of pain you went through and still go through. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Mary, with your words, you could be telling about my childhood. I feel like I already know you so well. Give yourself credit for the courage that it takes to write about your experiences.
