A Sister Unheard

In a single moment, her life changed forever.

Odd, her life twisted in a whole new direction, in just a few seconds.

Day in day out, she feels as if no one understands,

The world sees a huge smile on her face daily;

if only they knew what she is holding onto.  


The feeling, a horror she can’t seem to let go of.

Deep within, she wants to forgive, but it’s not easy to let go of that very moment.

That moment when he was filled with lechery.

To forgive her abuser for the life-changing pain he’s inflicted on her, she can’t.


He took away fragments of her soul with every plunge.

She spoke up, but no one ever tried to listen.

Moment after moment of no one lending an ear to her plea, it continued on and on;

So… she just gave up on mentioning it.


Oh, the horrors she goes through every night!

She’s grown weak; in her mind, she accepts it.

For her, she’s been the victim; it goes on continuously,

Maybe it will lessen if she endures this pain over and over again.


She grew up and told herself she was over it.

In her mind, she really wants to be over this horrifying moment,

but not a day goes by that she doesn’t think about it

Not a day goes by that she does n’t break down.


She can’t change her past,

she can’t sleep at night,

because of this life-changing event

she succumbed to a life of perpetual pain, without a willing acceptance.
Now that she’s grown,

She’s figured out her redemption

she’s realized the only way she can get past that moment is opening up and speaking about it.


However, when she was younger, no one ever tried to listen.

In anger, she screams, “HOW THE HELL DO I LET GO”?  when no one cares to listen or cares about you?

There’s nothing else she could do, so she just put on the sweetest smile.

A smile that only she knows masks the deepest of secrets held within.

She glows with the kindest of hearts that comes with a huge cost, which has felt a gruesome amount of pains and losses.
