I Survived.

A girl just the age of seven

Encountered a man

He said "This will be heaven"

Sneaking into her room at night after her mom was in bed

Again and again, broken down and violated in her bed

Cries for help that nobody could hear




Is anybody there?


Teen years arrived

Romantic feelings began to rise

Fearful of men

She chose women instead

Learning to love and trust humans again


Healing inside

She survived
