If someone had shown some love to me.
As a child I wanted to blend in, be the same,
My father was intent on playing his game.
I would cower down Under a chair,
Trying to pretend I wasn't there!
He'd find me, he'd beat me.. till I was black & blue,
Keeping his evil secret making me feel untrue.
Who could help me... I reached out I cried,
Every night I wished I had died.
The pain inside, the hurt is always there,
It transpired there's no one who cared.
I craved love & attention to feel I belonged,
Instead as a child I was hurt. I was wronged!
To have it re enforced you are under his spell,
Will I ever break free... Time will tell!
