I didn't know that at age 4 I was the innocent party.

I didn't know that all the sexual crap in my life was only acting out in response.

I didn't know that my mother really cared.

I didn't know that my coping mechanism of denial and avoidance would screw up my life, my marriage, my wife and kids that I love.

I didn't know that I could have caring fellow survivor male friends.

I didn't know that I would find a web site like MS that shows me I'm not a freak and alone but there is a better way.

Praise God.

Excellent thread.

I DIDN"T KNOW it wasn't my fault
I DIDN"T KNOW it was his sickness
I DIDN"T KNOW it was wrong
I DIDN"T KNOW it was abuse
I DIDN"T KNOW he would get into big trouble
I DIDN"T KNOW he was robbing me of my comfort
I DIDN"T KNOW it was not normal

Whew!!!

One day these will just roll off my tongue with NO sense of betrayal and disgust.

Peace,
DJ

I DIDN'T KNOW it was abuse and not love
I DIDN'T KNOW how terrified little me was
I DIDN'T KNOW where a broken me could mend

I thank everyone who has written here

I DIDN'T KNOW that I could be safe in telling
I DIDN'T KNOW that it was not my fault
I DIDN'T KNOW the abuse would isolate me from friends and family
I DIDN'T KNOW I could get better
I DIDN'T KNOW that my story could help others
I DIDN'T KNOW I could help prevent childhood sexual abuse
I DIDN'T KNOW
I just didn't know

I am so, so sorry that I did not know. ...so sorry.

Wow, what a powerful and long lived post. Thank you Larry.

NOW I KNOW! Now I know.
