A poem that I wrote based from the personal perspective of surviving years of child rape at the hands of my father.
You fooled the whole world
with your well rehearsed scheme.
You were a horrid nightmare...
disguised as a peaceful dream.
You shattered my heart and soul to pieces....
Still, I worshiped you through tear-filled eyes!
I tried denying what you were hiding......
your hidden secrets.....hidden lies.
You hid your soul behind a Bible.
You hid your heart behind a pew.
Folks couldn't see your cold, dark nature.
They couldn't see the actual you.
You fooled them all, but not for long!
Folks started seeing through your disguise!
They saw what I knew all along......
your hidden secrets....hidden lies!
Now you're gone, and I'm still here.
You can hurt me no more!
I can finally live my life in peace!
Now my soul can finally soar!
I ain't one to judge, but facts are facts!
And when you met your demise......
I'm sure that God, reminded you
of your hidden secrets....hidden lies"
