I am fed up of being affected by my past

the abuse and the traumas that last and last

ruining my daytime and taking sleep from me

I’ve tried and I’ve tried to talk it through but they don’t see

all this is slowly killing me

It’s a bit in the song about tigers come at night

but why don’t they leave when the darkness comes to light

why when I so much better and most of the fright has gone

is this still here even when I am not wrong

Jesus can heal me of every sickness, all

and I believe it so I try to keep walking tall

I always have hope so I don’t do the self harm

but why is that not enough to set your own alarm

please stop your bullying, don’t lie, just tell the truth

everything you say and do might impact others too

you might be ok, what you say is your own choice

what about the other ones who also hear your voice

why would you hurt others in order to help yourself

the truth always comes out, sometimes we need some help

historical abuse is only such because

we were not taken seriously, you covered up possibly

or simply that you didn’t see or didn’t want to see

how it affected you was more important than the effect on me

About God’s Girl1

Hello I write about what I know and I just try to let the words flow from my heart and soul. I have one of those minds that never switches off and because my poems are pretty simple I find the process very therapeutic and releasing for my mind too.
