"silent angels"

Poetry By: angelmona

Tags: Sexual, Abuse, Rape

why do they do it anyways? don't they know that raping a child is only going to distroy a life? and i mean a life! forever trapped within the memories when their innocence died those children grow up with the same fear they've felt through their whole childhood, yes that feeling will remain within their hearts like a perminant scar =(:::

A young girl lies sweetly in bed

innocent thoughts swimming through her head

He stands outside the door

her grandfather whom she used to adore

she lay in her pretty silk gown

she never knew what was going to go down

the room was dark and eery

and the little girl was weary

he came in not making a sound

avoiding her clothes piled into a mound

he crawled in to her bed

and put his hand on her head

his hand moved and crawled over her hips

she wanted to scream but he shut her lips

the girl began to silently cry

she felt so violated she wanted to die

he groped around between her thighs

ignoring her sad muffled cries

he breathed down her neck

her innocence he did wreck

he was enjoying this penetration

he did it without hesitation

she moved around trying to break free

but he continued to touch stifling her plea

he tried to move closer to have her

she pushed and cried scared of his laughter

he left the room and shut the door

she curled up to weep not able to sleep anymore

she went on pretending she was well

and to her parents she would not tell

her innocence was taken

her heart was shaken

it was her who everybody blamed

and the little girl was so ashamed

what was she supposed to do

when she had no one to turn to?


It realy tears me apart to know those facts:

- Every 2.5 minutes someone is sexually assaulted in America

- one in three girls are sexually abused

- 38% of girls are sexually abused before the age of 18

- 16% of boys are sexually abused before the age of 18

- 89% of victims knew their abuser

- It is estimated that there are 60 million survivors of childhood sexual abuse in America today

- victims are increasingly likely to battle eating disorders, self- injury, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, and depression

- an abuser can be anyone: the sweet elderly old man next door, oryour 5th grade teacher

- children that are sexually abused experience shame, fear, and very low self -esteem

- nearly 70% of child sex offenders have between 1 and 9 victims

- at least 20% have 10 to 40 victims.


If you relate to the girl in my poem don't feel alone<3 remeber there is always hope,

and don't be ashamedor scared to talk about it with someone (IT WAS NOT YOUR FAULT<3) i asure you there are many people out there to help you and to listen to you!


Love - Mona <3
