In the beginning

I was safe


You took my innocence away

You stole my childhood

What you did was nothing good

You broke me down

Tried to break my spirit

But I continued to shine

Know this now

I continue to be fine

I was a puppet

Your play thing, your toy

But I’m not that little girl now

Fuck you, abuser

Your dead to me, right now.

  1. I just finished reading Alison Arngrim’s memoir, Confessions of a Prairie Bitch. She was molested by her older brother between the ages of six and eleven. At the end of the book, she said she thinks there is no reason for victims of molestation to reconcile with their abusers. Her brother never expressed remorse for his actions.
    I agree with her. I don’t see why those of us who have been abused should feel the need to forgive our abusers.
