A poem written on October 1, 2006, while I was deployment on USS Ronald Reagan.
Look inside of yourself,
Listen to this little girl that is only 11,
She is still teriffied, ashamed, hurt, angry
betrayed and feels lone,
Try to comfort her
Trying to give her a voice,
Telling her it is okay for her to tell her story,
Still afraid of the threat that he made
Afraid to say the words,
You need to be held,
To be told that it was not your fault.
Trying to give that little girl
inside of you a voice,
She cannot believe that you have
been raped other times.
