    Ok, I wrote this after a very intense therapy session I had a while back.


    If my memory serves me well enough
    I can still see her face
    Young and innocent and full of life
    But suddenly it's all erased
    Replaced by tears and broken trust
    A child gone to waste
    Much too young to know
    What happened wasn't right
    But not too young to realize
    She should have put up a fight
    With a snap of the fingers it was gone
    Her life changed forever
    The child that she once was
    Would never be seen again
    The memories I hold now
    Are hard and painful to watch
    Running away wont do any good
    It'll just make things worse
    My mother never knew what happened
    Because I never told her
    Not once
    Now I know what I must do
    To protect myself
    To protect you
    I'll open my mouth to the world
    I'll make them all see
    No one should have to go through this
    Not him
    Not her
    Not me
    The secrets that I keep inside
    Are eating me alive
    Now is my time to speak
    To open up your eyes
    So now as I stand tall and proud
    A woman turning to face her demons
    I'll let them all know
    Abuse happened to me
