I donít remember agreeing to grow old

If age comes with wisdom
   when do I start to understand
      the lingering effects of the abuse?

If age comes with forgetfullness
   when do I start forgetting the abuse
      and losing the pain at its side?

If age comes with compassion
   when do I start having some
      for myself?

If age comes with aches and pains
   can they at least wait
      until Iím over the ones from the abuse?

No, I donít remember agreeing to grow old

But then Ė I donít remember agreeing to grow up either

Are we?? This is one of those places where I feel isolated - like I'm the only one dreading, fearing, and hating my increasing age...

I think that almost every human being is there feeling isolated and in fear of aging...

I just turned 66 and have been dealing with the awareness of what happened to me for 29 years and I still feel like a bobber in a lake of emotion. I think I understand what you are saying.
