I enjoyed your poem and the sequel too. My heart goes out to the little ones who never get a chance to be loved.

Wordcharmer, what wonderful words of hope. Yes, you can rise above the way you were raised. I'm living proof of it.

chick, thank you. There are so many children who don’t know that someone does love them…

Dotsie, I am almost 56 and have been writing since I was a teenager. I keep a file and so far it has about 1000 of my poems recorded. I have not recorded all the poems I've ever written. Some are packed away in attic trunks. Maybe I'll get that done before my fingers become to gnarled to type! Lol!

Sherri, Thank you. Yes, I am too. I am an incest and abuse survivor.

Thanks for your kind words everyone.

Sounds like my life, although our "darling" is 14. But I'm seriously considering a handgun (could use it for work for safety purposes) and having it on me all the time. I am terrified of knives so couldn't do that. I am beginning to react out of fear and get into survival mode. It sucks, doesn't it? Everything has to be their way all the time. When they want something, it's so extreme a response if he doesn't get it. I just want him to go away. Can't wait until he isn't here ~ it sounds so awful. But I can totally understand. Once we were lucky to have him placed for observation for four months in a facility, felt like heaven. Our story is posted in a new post that I just placed today.
