Some of you have read my poem "The boy Warrior" it is in my journal. The reason i mention it in this forum is becasue i know without exception that god guided my thoughts in this expression of my recovery and life. I think God intervines in so many ways that many of us don't realize it. I wrote the poem on night after i had decided what the heck everyone else is writing poems maybe it can help me. My goal was to summerize my life and thoughts about it. I said a prayer to jesus and simple ask that he guide me in this. This was truely an amazing moment for me. I almost didn't have to work on it much at all. It flowed out of me and only took about 2 to 3 hours to write. While i do not consider it a literary work it is so far beyonded my own ablility to express myself in this manner and the ease at which i wrote it really makes me realize that god did guide my hand and clerity of thought. So many times god is right with us and we don't realize it.

edit the boy warrior.
Thursday, June 19, 2008 I have had several requests to keep this posted so i have placed it back in my journal.





The Boy Warrior :

You came as a thief in the night.

A cowards heroics.

And took all that was dear to me,

Never asking just taking.

You followed in the shadows all the days of my life,

But, now I see you, no more places for you to hide,

You were the monsters chasing me in my dreams,

And will no more.

For out of the ashes of the life you took,

Came something you could not take.

The courage of a child!

The love of a child!

Or the spirit of a child!

Yes you took so much.

And still you follow and torment me in my moments of weakness.

So many times you wore me down, and each time I would fight you back.

For so long I fought you to a stalemate, never winning never loosing.

Me at the edge of the pressipest,

And you always managing to take more ground.

Never satisfied,

Greed with no bounds.

Always pushing me ever closer to the edge, and close you came many a time.

How clever you thought you were!

How blind you are by your own ignorance.

Only a fool would not know!

That out of the destruction comes creation!

Yes my old nemesis, my life long companion.

You did create something!

You made me!

I am the sum of your trials and much more.

You are part of me.

I accept you are part of my life.

I accept you have taken all that is dear to me.

Above all I accept you made the Boy Warrior!!!

Did you believe I would never find him again?

That eight year old boy, I left behind so many years ago.

It is he who carried me thru life!

It is he who pushed you when I could not!

It was he who loved when I wanted to hate!

It was he who cried when I could not!

It is he who opened my eyes to you!

And he who would not give up on me when I gave up on him!

Yes you hurt me.

But you did not destroy me or him.

We stand together now.

We fight side by side – you have lost!

Yes see what you have made!

You know of the bad but what of the good?

You know not my measure of love,

Compassion,

Generosity,

My spirit, love of life and people!

Or my unwavering faith.

You know not my willingness to do the right thing regardless of the cost.

No you don’t know me!

And you never will.

I will morn my loses.

And rejoice for my life.

There are no more shadows.

We walk in the light of our soul now.

A soul of an eight year old boy and a 53 year old man who became the boy warrior.

A boy who’s smile lights the way.

As we forever embrace and walk the path of life as one.

Whole again. 11/30/2007







For all you abusers out there we are so much better than you could ever hope to be. While the fires of hell consume your soul I will watch in sadness for all that is lost and all that could have been had you got the help you need. For the pain you have caused and lives you have cost. And yes I will feel sad for you too. God didn't make evil souls, you choose the path that we victims didn't. You may have been abused or not. you may be evil or not. But what is certain that you will live your life in emotional torment and your life is worth nothing unless you get the help you need.

I have beat you. I have won. I have recovered

Good poem! I guess I haven't seen a bad one yet here. I think if I were to try to come up with a positive stereotype for survivors (we all know about the negative ones) it would be being a great poet.

Thank you for the excellent poem.

For recovery one needs to be very specific about memory systems. Not to prod you, but what happened when you were 8?

You seem to be expressing some the emotions what many of us feel as we tread our journey of healing.

the sexual abuse started when i was eight by my much older brother. this lead to being in a circle of peodofiles. it took ten years to finnally break free from these people. my brother had much older friends and they in turn put me in harms way with men in there 30, and 40s. and a one married couple in particular. for all practical purposes the child that was once me was lost until the Boy warrior found him. it only took 45 years.

hope this helps.

as best i can remember there were between 15 and 20 perps in the 10 years.
