Truth: A Poem About Sexual Abuse


The truth burns inside me

As though it were lies

That’s the thing about abuse

It has its own life

Your life

Is its life

But no one sees it

Save you

And you walk about

All normal


Something random happens

A child cries

A song plays

Someone touches you

Just so

And the cells of your body cringe

Or quail

Or cower quietly

As you dissolve inside

Your hidden truth


But only to you

Wondering  where does your truth lie

When you’ve been told your truth is lies

    I am recovering from a whole childhood of sexual abuse, it has laid dormant as my dirty little secret for over 20 yrs. The pain has surfaced and now I am suffering from post traumatic stress, ur poem is so true, everyone says let it go, they have no idea of magnitude of the torture
