      Betrayed once
      Betrayed twice
      Never trust again
      A child lost
      Ignored and forgotten
      Becomes a lost adult
      Her feelings obsolete
      Assertiveness never repeats
      The wounded retreat
      Suppressed, Oppressed
      Worthless trash
      Taught through abuse
      To be self abusive
      No self esteem
      Or Self worth
      Life not valued
      Is not valuable
      To the inner child
      Consumed by rage
      Others see
      What they label
      Without knowing
      What the cause is
      They pass judgment
      Teach others to judge
      And point fingers
      Everywhere but at
      Little respect is learned
      When love is demonstrated
      Through pain
      Silence is promoted
      Health is disregarded
      Never tell the secrets
      Never laugh, or play
      Don’t confide, or bond
      Eventually all will be taken away
      Ripped from the inside
      Blinded from the outside
      Sent into war
      Without a weapon
      Sent into madness
      Without any support
      Born strong
      Not a problem
      It will be beaten,
      Smothered, Isolated, and
      Out of you
      Before you have a chance
      To use it against them
      Mixed messages
      It will all be okay
      But it isn’t now
      So when will it be
      Kept in a room
      In a closet
      In the darkness
      Within your soul
      Entrapped in the wrong
      Because nothing you do
      Is right
      Anticipate rejection
      Know you are ugly,
      Unloved, and not wanted
      How will you ever learn
      To love yourself
