I was so sick of the Abuse
All the beatings, All the tears, All the lies, I was bruised
Took you my whole life to apologies
You say you were stressed, I see that as an excuse
You never actually said sorry, So why should I forgive you I refuse

How could someone be so Heartless
I was four years old but its affected me regardless
You were just my babysitter
You claimed to love kids, yet to me you were so bitter
Yet I cant seem to hate you

Its taken me 13 years to figure out why i don't hate you
They say pain and heartache makes you stronger
I'm looking forward to my future
You will not take over my life for no longer

Author Notes

13 Years ago, I was abused by a women who use to babysit me, Its always been something that would sit on my chest, I have not found the guts to forgive her but i'm sure one day i will but right now she is irreverent to my life.

Very sad thing to write about. I liked it. Child abuse is something that is far to common.

Thank you very much and yes sadly it is very common

Great job
I felt all your emotions coming through loud and clear, I too was abused when I was younger, and your right it does take time to heal, and I would also like to say that you are not forgiving her for what she did, but you are saying to her when you do forgive her that she no longer has the power of you any more, and that you are moving on with your life. Thanks for sharing it helps a lot of people when one shares it makes it ok for others to share. God Bless you, and it does get better I promise.

I am sorry to hear that but yes i guess your right, i never thought of it that way, i could be helping others and i hope i am, thank you very much
