I Found Fear In Your Eyes.

I Found Fear In Your Eyes.

A Poem by MetBySunlight

I don't care that it's long, read it anyway. Please (:

"

She was just eight years old

When the cops came and took him away

She was too young to understand

Why he disappeared that day

But he abused another woman

Just to feel like a man

And that woman was young,

Not too different from his daughter

And that woman cried for the rest of her life.

 

Keep it together now,

It's not your fault

Keep it together now,

It doesn't have to be this way

There will be a man who treats you right

Don't give up without a fight.

 

A few years down the line,

Body changing, what's happening?

Taught about abuse, taught about sex

Realising what happened back then

Was never OK

After all these years,

Keeping it in the dark,

Wishing the memory will fade.

 

Keep it together now,

It's not your fault

Keep it together now,

It doesn't have to be this way

There will be a man who treats you right

Don't give up without a fight.

 

Was he ever paid

To do the things he did?

At the end of the day

Was it worth it?

Kept inside for life

Thrived to be a teacher

Does he regret his actions,

Or does he regret getting caught?

 

Keep it together now,

It's not your fault

Keep it together now,

It doesn't have to be this way

There will be a man who treats you right

Don't give up without a fight.

 

I grew older

And things got better,

But boys remained the same

Abusing girls for fun

Why do they not realise

What they do is painful?

Maybe we're too young

To comprehend the ways of the wrong.

 

Keep it together now,

It's not your fault

Keep it together now,

It doesn't have to be this way

There will be a man who treats you right

Don't give up without a fight.

 

I kept on falling

I never said go away, I was scared and ashamed

Now wondering what could have been

If only I'd called for help,

Maybe everything would have stopped.

 

Keep it together now,

It's not your fault

Keep it together now,

It doesn't have to be this way

There will be a man who treats you right

Don't give up without a fight.

 

Everyone grows older

And memories do fade

Tell your story,

Defeating lost glory

Stand tall and unashamed.

Wow. That was really something. I'm also with you people shoudl always speak up about things of this sort, it does nothing to help them when they keep it all in. When you wrote the part :Thrived to be a teacherDoes he regret his actions,Or does he regret getting caught? It made me think about when people sexually abuse a child and forever ruins thier life. Really, great job,
