What did you do for me?
Did you hurt me?
Do you remember it like I do?
If you really love me you do things for me not to me.
If you really care you protect me not hurt me.
When I remember things I look for joy and love.
If you were more like me I would have been spared.
If you could see what damage you caused you would have left me alone.
When I sleep at night my dreams are kept from me, but I still have dreams.
I was just a kid, I desearved better, and now I do what I can to survive.
There is a new family surrounding me now, friends and family I choose.
Life goes on after being hurt, but the scars are there.
What did you do for me and others like me?
Did you show love or did you take innocence.
I choose to help and heal those hurt like me.
I wish you would have made that same choice to help.
Shame on you for molesting a child.
Shame on you for hurting and harming me.
