she was just seven years old
and she could already feel the cold hands of pain
innocence snatched at an early age, she could go insane
even as she stared blankly at the ground not really seeing
it was glaring what he did but pain and shame kept her from saying
a lanky average height creepy creep
came along and stole her innocence..its effect so deep
he would come around to water the garden and guard the gates
in a slow rhythmic manner, almost as though he had a compulsive disorder
she could feel his gaze on her, each time she came out to play
it would send shivers down her spine
and she would run along anytime she sensed him close.
how could he, He was meant to watch after her
but then he touched her, and touched her some more
shhhh, he wisperd in those voice as cold as ice
shhhhh, i wont hurt you if you stay silent
it was her first sexual encounter and she was just seven
her mind hurt, screamed, she knew it was wrong but she was pinned to the wall
his hands caressing her little body, up and down her little thighs made her skin crawl
she tried to escape, but he wouldn’t let go
struggling to get free even as his hands pierced through her skin pinning her down.
her little blue flowery dress raised up, as he performed oral sex on the 7year old
her innocence he took with out a second thought.
and then a second time it happened, she had been careless in her movement
as she felt the all too familiar shivers she felt when he was lurking around
never suspecting she wasn’t alone until too late
she turned and saw the knowing smile on his creepy lip, she hated
…this time he made her give him a hand job
as he wisperd shhhh, it wont hurt
but it did hurt, more of the mental than the physical
as her mind screamed, shoving and kicking which only infuriated him.
when he was done, he let her run away in pain.
she felt used in the wrong way, like discarded rags
her heart was crushed as she couldn’t understand why
she was unaware that the seed he planted had taken root,
a seed of bitterness, anger and self hate
she was so hung up on it, not being able to forgive
she withdrew just to get less attention, she must have done something wrong to get this aggression
and so they would call her out and laugh at her withdrawal but never really asking why
she stood there quietly, all the while screaming in her heart, for them to see she was hurting but they never did.
so she got hung up on trying to figure out why
screaming at God, saying he was the cause
why else would He let such happen to a seven year old
he sure was the meanest
locking it at the back of her mind, not fully healing
an open wound covered with plaster, still bleeding
and then it resurfaced, hurt as fresh as ever, when she heard of anther’s innocence taken
ooh God! this pain yet again she screamed, clawing at her skin to stop the pain
as she finally told God to take the pain
and then HE let her see it, why it had happened, why to her
it wasn’t what she did or how she acted or her fault, it was the creep’s
and then His light showed her a way out
letting her see she could get past it
just as He was bruised, for her to heal through it
she could see the beauty now, in her scares
to help those victims through their hurt
she was beautiful and loved regardless
overcoming the lies that kept her in hate.
This is to every boy, or girl, who has had their innocence taken, who has been defenseless, to every man or women who has had life knock them senseless, who has had the devil feed them with lies, has had life treat them with contempt. This is to every silent cry in the middle of the night, to every chocked cry for help. Christ is the one that makes you feel better and gives you peace, let Him in to set you free.
just let HIM in to love and soothe you like it was meant to always be.
Stay Beautiful Always….
