born to a mother that had no love
only perverse uses for her children

stepfather molester too
they come in pairs

beaten to the core of my soul
buried in pain I had no control

I sought the happy endings
through abusive relationships

my children being my only grace
one child removed too hard to face

I grieve for that child taken
now she is all grown up

I thought my father needed me
him being old and unsteady

I would never have guessed
what came next

my own sweet daddy
tried to rape me

Now I am nobodies child
he is dead to me
