this is a poem about a person who was sexually abused by a family member


family ties

when will it end
this horror within

when will break free
of thoughts of your sin

when will i smell
anything other thatn gin

when will i live
without flesh of kin

There isn't always a reply to questions such as this.
But there are choices however small in the way that we live out our lives - not only in the sense of protecting self but in looking out for others around us.
The horror is that we discover soon enough that we are not alone.
Great stuff - meaning - a voice is given to a topic not easy to write about or be dignified about.

I think the grammatical errors should be overlooked and let your senses be centered on the storyline.

This is mesmerizing.

*other then the spelling error...

Very good, stanza stanza. I liked it, emotional. I had no idea.
