Inside …

 

Everyone saw you as the

perfect catch

A man of you word…

Someone dedicated not only

to people but faith

 

No one knew the secret

No one knew the darkness

How your soul hid the

deepest truth …

But I did …

 

Your delight in putting me down

Me personally…

My friends..

Even my chosen career…

Nothing was safe when you began

to berate me…

embarrass me…

destroy my soul with your words

or even worse with your silence

 

Abuse comes in many forms

your choice left nothing visible

nothing that I could show others

and say … “This is what he does to me.”

I suffered in silence for ten long

years before I decided not to be

your victim ever again …

Or …

To ever let anyone treat

me in such a way again …

My Childhood

My Childhood

I was never a “girlie” girl

But…

I wasn’t a tomboy either

Just a regular kid

who loved to play

I played hard…

Went after everything all out…

Roller skating…

Bike riding…

Skate boarding down the

Methodist Church hill

And

on the tennis courts

Lived in the pool every

minute possible

My knees, elbows, arms,

and legs were always

evidence of what

I did best…

Had a great time!

Those small scrapes and

bruises of childhood are the

autobiography of my life

back then …

A small scar or several

scattered across my

knees and elbows,

arms and legs

A childhood story for each

and every one of them

Looking at the roadmap of

my childhood across my

skin…

I smile and miss all the

good times we had

back then!
