An old Poem

A poem about my brother


I lived on the edge
I felt like breaking down
I live in my hate
And in my pain I drowned
I wanted to die, but I had to live
Still my thoughts surrounded suicide
I could never see the beauty in life
Because you showed me the bad
You destroyed my old life
And gave me a new one
One where I was strong
So I have to thank you
Because if not for you
I wouldn't be who I am today
So, I thank you
For you have shown me what life is all about
But I still don't want you in my life
I want you out
You hurt me in a way that can never be forgiven
Mother allowed you her forgiveness
Steve forgave you
Father did too
I never will forgive you
My friends will kill you
So stay away from me
And stay out of my life
Don't come begging for forgiveness
Because, Brother, you will never receive it

You wrote with such raw emotion. It came through as I read each line. Child molestation is one of the worst thing anyone could ever go through [ believe me; I know ]. It could destroy you if you let it. I'm glad you didn't allow what your brother did to you destroy you. Poetry is the best therapy.....keep writing through your pain. God Bless.

Don't Blink, anyone that's ever been here knows what I mean, GA

I'm just... Me. I love writing, it's one of my passions. I've been writing since I can remember, but that doesn't go past third grade. It started out as stories of horses, then it went to fanfiction, .. more..
