       Are we what our emotional environment makes us, or are we who we are from the moment we are born? Can we change? Can we emerge from the darkness and become ourselves again? Or do we return, again and again, to that place of uncertainty and fall back upon what we know...?

    Just musing, forever musing...

    How did you know how to hurt me?
    Was it a gift that you were born with?
    Or a habit that you were raised with?
    Were you taught this example of love?
    What formed you, what made you?
    And is that an excuse?
    If it were, then would I not be
    As cruel as you?
    Would I not see the world
    Through such a jaded view?
    I did not begin this way
    Faded and abused
    Silenced and scorned
    Painfully aware of all my faults
    Somewhere along the line
    I was put on hold
    Shut away and shamed for being me
    Kept in a pot so small
    So I would not grow
    Hidden away from the light
    So no one would know
    You followed the trail of dirt that I left
    Caught me red-handed climbing in
    You watched me fill in the space around me
    Resentment in your eyes
    Fear beneath your skin
    If you let me have this freedom
    Will I stay?
    You try to make me small
    So I won't go away
    Well don't worry
    I'm not going anywhere

      Absolutely perfect
    I can easily relate to this poem
    This poem to me describes a child that has been abused by society emotionaly physically and sexually
    They feel they have no where to turn
    Sadly like I said I can easilly relate to this
    This is a favorite
    Extremely well written
    God Bless

    By the way The inclusuon of my Mom in my last poem crying described my Little sister who has down syndrome
    She was in a hospital for the first 8 months of her life
    I have written several poems about her but I forget not everyone is aware of the situation
    Thank You and
    God Bless
